We would like to honour our expedition partners on this page:
Research and exploration grants:
National Geographic Society’s Science and Exploration Grant (GEFNE174-16) is our primary funding source. National Geographic Society was founded in 1888 with the purpose to increase and diffuse geographic knowledge. Nowadays, it is among the largest non-profit organisations in science and education worldwide. Since 1888 they have also been publishing the famous National Geographic Magazine.
Percy Sladen Memorial Fund, a trust fund administered by the Linnean Society of London, commemorating the marine biologist Percy Sladen (1849-1900). Our fieldwork has been counted among their supported causes.
