Using tech

to support the efforts

Proper response and decision-making requires the best possible information

That includes: satellite imagery, prior marine studies as well as allowing any global citizen to collect and preserve digital evidence of the state of the ocean with our mobile applications backed by blockchain.

Satellite imagery

Thanks to generous support from organizations such as Planet Labs Inc., Ursa Space Systems, ICEYE and others, OceanExO is gathering the most up-to-date and precise satellite imagery to inform and target local efforts. We’re working hard to make this information accessible to scientists asap.

Marine science & documenting local biodiversity

Thanks to the support of numerous organizations, such as Allen Coral Atlas and support from local and international marine science community, we’re working hard to document and preserve the rich fauna and flora – a lot of it unique to Mauritius – and the impact of the spill.
