2012 - THE ADVENTURES BEGIN
After inventing the revolutionary SVII camera, we kicked off our surveying on the Great Barrier Reef - the most comprehensive scientific survey of the reef in history. We had two teams working on five separate expeditions, a shallow reef team and a deep reef team going places no one has ever gone before.
2013 - GOING GLOBAL
Following the success of our Australian expeditions, we took the project global - heading off to the Caribbean region. Side trips to Galapagos, Monaco and numerous other locations made this an amazingly successful year.
2014 - International collaborations
We teamed up with NOAA's Office of National Marine Sanctuaries in 2014 to do our first major survey in the US - that was in addition to our survey of numerous locations in the Coral Triangle. It was also a year where we partnered with UNESCO, held our first exhibition, surveyed Sydney, started community engagement work, re-visited the Great Barrier Reef after Cyclone ITA and got involved in several documentaries.
2015 - the lead up to cop21
Although we witnessed and revealed the start of the 3rd Global Bleaching Event in 2014, it really started to gather momentum in 2015. We revisited American Samoa twice to record a reef bleaching and dying for the first time using 360-degree photography. We had major expeditions in the Indian Ocean and a major exhibition at the Natural History Museum. Then came Paris and COP21. It was a very busy year.
2016 - RELAUNCHING AS THE OCEAN AGENCY
The year started with bleaching on the Great Barrier Reef and we were there in full force to record it in unprecedented new ways. It's going to be another busy year.
