The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation (KSLOF) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of the world’s oceans and aquatic resources. For two decades, the Foundation has used its 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. Success in these three pillars of our work helped the Foundation become a global player in marine conservation.
Throughout 2017, the Foundation Staff completed the arduous task of cataloguing and quality-controlling the “big-data” we collected during the Global Reef Expedition field work component (2011-2015).
Having completed an intensive five years of field work for the Global Reef Expedition in 2015, it was time to roll up our sleeves for the challenging analytical work ahead
2015 marked an important milestone in our Foundation’s life – completion of the field-work for our Global Reef Expedition (GRE). However, the project is far from over as we bear down on the ominous task of analyzing the many terabytes of data we collected in five years.
2014 marked the fourth year of our historic Global Reef Expedition. On our journey around the world’s coral belt we have been rewarded with scientific discoveries and concerned by the pace and scale of the coral reef crisis.
This 2013 annual report gives us the opportunity to reflect on three full years completed on our ambitious Global Reef Expedition. We have now surveyed and mapped the coral reefs of eleven different countries, widely distributed from the Caribbean Sea to the vast South Pacific Ocean.
This annual report chronicles our second full year of the Global Reef Expedition in which we completed our work in the greater Caribbean, conducted research in the Galapagos and journeyed to the South Pacific. Our accomplishments have been impressive to date but much work remains.
