Two Decades of Aquatic Life Exploration
For the past two decades, the Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation has used a three-pronged approach of science, education, and outreach to create lasting conservation for some of the world’s most remote and vulnerable coral reef systems.
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.
Global Reef Expedition: Great Barrier Reef
Watch to see how we conducted research into the effectiveness of management zones on the Great Barrier Reef while on the Global Reef Expedition.
Living Oceans Foundation Completes Global Coral Reef Atlas
The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation has completed the World Reef Map, an online interactive coral reef atlas that allows users to explore all of the coral reefs and shallow water marine habitats mapped on the Global Reef Expedition.
Science Without Borders® is the overarching theme of the Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation. It provides financial sponsorship of marine conservation programs and scientific research around the globe, and raises awareness of the need to preserve, protect and restore the world's oceans and aquatic resources.

Our Coral Reef Ecology Curriculum is a great resource for students and teachers. Filled with lesson plans, videos, and interactive learning exercises, our education portal engages and inspires students to learn about coral reefs and to become stewards of this vital ecosystem.
We are now accepting applications for the 2020 Science Without Borders® Challenge! This international student art contest encourages students to be creative while learning about important ocean science and conservation issues. The SWB Challenge is open to middle and high school students 11-19 years old, with prizes of up to $500 awarded to the winning entries. The theme for the 2020 Science Without Borders® Challenge is “Take Action: Conserve Coral Reefs.” For this year's contest, we are asking students to use their artistic talents to create a piece of art that illustrates actions that can be taken to preserve coral reefs.
