Oceana Canada, leading scientists and Alexandra Cousteau, Senior Oceana Advisor and granddaughter of Jacques-Yves Cousteau, will set sail to explore never-before-seen parts of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The week-long expedition is the most in-depth visual exploration of the area in Canada’s history. Thanks to advances in oceanographic research and technology, you too can take part and interact with scientists through a 24-hour live stream and daily video and photo updates shared across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
The expedition team will collect samples as well as videos and images to document new areas of the seafloor. This expedition is the most in-depth visual exploration of the Gulf of St. Lawrence in Canada’s history and its findings will help protect habitat essential to the health of our oceans.
