Are your kids learning from home? The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation has a number of resources parents and teachers can use to provide their kids with a quality science education.
National-scale marine bioregions for the Southwest Pacific
This scientific paper, by KSLOF scientists Alex Dempsey and Sam Purkis, shows how they used data-based methods to develop the first comprehensive oceanic and marine bioregions for the South Pacific. These marine bioregions enable the design of ecologically representative national marine protected areas in Pacific nations.
World's Largest Marine Park: Mapping the Blue
