The Ocean Exploration Trust’s top priority is the safety of our team. With the recent global outbreak of Coronavirus COVID-19, we are closely monitoring recommendations from officials — including the World Health Organization, Center for Disease Control, the US Coast Guard, and International Maritime Organization — and taking proactive precautions for the safety of our team members and program participants. We will continue to monitor developments in the US and globally as we look towards our 2020 Nautilus Expedition season, scheduled to launch in June to explore the Eastern Pacific Ocean from British Columbia to Southern California. We will continue to update as OET and E/V Nautilus make informed decisions as this fluid situation evolves.
The Nautilus Exploration Program is funded by these major partners.
