TARA MED

After sailing the oceans all over the planet, the schooner Tara is back in the Mediteranean sea! The current expedition is called Tara Mediterranée.
I embarked between Antibes, France and Cala Gonone, Sardaigna. We navigated in the Ligurian Sea, along the coasts of Elba, Corsica and Sardaigna Islands.

The Objective of the expedition :

  • Quantify plastic particles in the Mediteranean
  • Inform a large public and young ones more specifically about environemental issues
  • Communicate around the Tara Expeditions project
  • My mission during this trip was to create new content for our upcoming plakton documentary film and exhibit. I also wrote a dayly log and documented the expedition. I participated in the scientific operations, helping out with the net manoeuvres, sorting and photographing samples. During my spare time I continued painting watercolors of my observations.

    View a couple of photos of the Expedition here. Visit the TARA EXPEDITIONS website for more info, film and photos.

    This was a unique experience, very productive and interesting in terms of learning navigation and collecting samples with plankton nets.
    The spirit onboard was excellent, only 11 crew members, great people to be at sea with!
