Tara Mediterranean expedition, from April to November 2014
After more than four years sailing around the world and the Arctic, Tara will be on mission in the Mediterranean from May to November 2014, with two objectives : to accomplish a scientific study concerning plastic pollution, and to promote awareness of environmental challenges in the Mediterranean region.
This expedition, the schooner’s tenth since 2003, is an opportunity for Tara Expeditions to promote the efforts of local and regional associations on many environmental issues concerning this almost-closed sea.
A traveling exhibition and films will be shared with the public. We will also welcome classes aboard at each stopover. Artists will be in residence on Tara for the duration of the expedition.
