Aquatilis Expedition is an epic three-year underwater journey through the unknown, set to explore a world of most extraordinary creatures.
Aquatilis is a unique interdisciplinary exploratory and scientific venture through the world’s oceans, undertaken by a versatile professional team. The study of gelatinous plankton (or gelata) is the driving force behind our project. Gelata are soft-bodied creatures that float through the waters, unable to resist the currents. They remain one of the most mysterious groups of organisms in the world today due to the difficulty of successfully harvesting them for laboratory study. They are integral to the health of our oceans’ ecosystems and to the Earth’s environment as a whole. Our expedition will provide an unprecedented opportunity to study these creatures in their natural habitat using ultra-contemporary methods and technologies.
In addition to giving contemporary natural sciences a significant drive forward, we will make our journey an engaging educational experience for the widest possible audience. We believe that the incredible beauty of the oceans and the robust science surrounding our findings will inspire a multitude of people around the world to learn about, explore and be mindful of their environment. The vast array of hyper-detailed photo and video material we will assemble during our travels will be used for educational, scientific and entertainment purposes many years after the expedition comes to an end.
