XL Catlin has been supporting ocean science since 2009, through the Catlin Arctic Surveys, XL Catlin Seaview Survey and XL Catlin Deep Ocean Survey. Now we're sharing our discoveries with children, teachers and parents, so that we can all learn the importance of the oceans to our everyday lives.
XL Catlin Oceans Education resources has been used by an estimated 3.5 million students in 96 countries. 89% of those using the resources agree that they have enhanced students' understanding of oceans topics.
XL Catlin is proud to sponsor research and education programmes which explore our changing oceans. To achieve its vision of an ocean literate future, XL Catlin works with a wide array of scientific, exploration and academic partners.
