BECOME A CITIZEN SCIENTIST
Our expeditions combine science, design, and frontier technologies to experience, understand, and share beautiful and threatened ocean environments, especially coral reefs. Participants are invited to join the Hydrous community of scientists, educators, tech professionals, divers, and creative minds to learn together, share adventures, and find solutions to some of the world’s most pressing problems. Since 2014, the Hydrous has explored marine ecosystems in California, Hawaii, Easter Island, Palau, Japan, Guam, Indonesia, and the Maldives (flagship destination).
Joining expeditions supports the Hydrous mission of ocean education and conservation.
Banco Chinchorro, Mexico
Sept. 29th - Oct. 7th, 2018
Banco Chinchorro Biosphere Reserve is an atoll reef lying off the southeast coast Quintana Roo, Mexico, near Belize. The atoll is part of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System, is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and has been a protected national park since 1996. Banco's remote offshore location has helped maintain excellent coral and fish populations. Our expedition team just returned and we’ve posted some great photos and highlights here, in advance of a full expedition report.
