Ocean Census

In 2023, The Nippon Foundation and Nekton joined forces to change the way we discover ocean life. Ocean Census is a moonshot initiative aiming to discover 100,000 new species in the next ten years. It is built on a suite of new technologies from high-resolution imaging to machine learning and DNA sequencing.

Encounter Edu works with Ocean Census to bring exploratory science and the importance of new species discovery to classes around the world.
