Despite the restrictions imposed by the pandemic, we had a remarkable year in 2021. Not only did we complete the Global Reef Expedition — the largest coral reef survey and mapping research mission in history — we signed a Space Act Agreement with NASA, launched a new TV show on EarthX TV, and expanded the remote learning opportunities on our Education Portal.
By all accounts, 2020 was an extremely successful year for the Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation (KSLOF). It was certainly a challenging year, but also a productive one, primarily because we were able to adapt to changes imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Although we were not able to travel to share our findings at international conferences or complete some of our Mangrove Education and Restoration programs, we published a record number of scientific reports from the Global Reef Expedition, and we were here to help teachers and students with the transition to remote learning.
In 2019, the Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation produced a number of successful peer-reviewed scientific publications, launched a new mangrove education program, and released our findings from the Global Reef Expedition mission to French Polynesia.
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.
