“The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation is circumnavigating the globe on a five year research mission to study the world’s coral reefs. Scientific opportunities to do research like this don’t come along everyday but that’s just one of the reasons that their Global Reef Expedition is so special. Another is that it involves a multidisciplinary team of scientists from many countries and institutions. For about a month at a time the researchers come together to live aboard the M/Y Golden Shadow to collect scientific data from remote corners of the ocean.”
