According to the UN, the extent of the threats posed by marine pollution, plastics and the contaminants they release, and their impacts on marine biodiversity in particular, are not sufficiently known.
Further research is needed and is essential for the effective management of human activities affecting the marine environment and biodiversity.
KRESK4OCEANS wishes to contribute to a better understanding of the impact of pollution and contaminants on marine biodiversity by developing projects using sailing ships, real floating laboratories, more agile and allowing access to poorly known areas.
KRESK4OCEANS supports and implements innovative scientific expeditions aiming to better understand the impact of contaminants on marine biodiversity.
KRESK4OCEANS wishes to pay particular attention to the consequences of bioccumulation on endocrine systems by studying the presence of endocrine disruptors and their impacts on marine biodiversity.
Racing boats reach areas of the ocean that are poorly served by shipping traffic and scientists lack data mainly to the north and south of the Globe.
The trimaran supported by the KRESK Group will collect data on the health of the ocean during circumnavigations via the South Pole.
