Project Baseline is a 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization working to explore, document, & protect the underwater world since 2009. Mobilize citizen-divers to record change in the world’s underwater environments and to engage with scientific, conservation, and government entities to advance the restoration and protection of our natural and cultural treasures.

Global Underwater Explorers (GUE) represents a global network of GUE communities, empowered by highly refined diver training programs and inspired to explore and conserve the world’s aquatic environments. GUE is a leader in scuba education, developing numerous industry-first training protocols with a global cast of extremely knowledgeable professional educators and producing divers of exceptional quality. These educational programs enable divers to enjoy a nearly unlimited range of opportunities, including conservation programs, exploration projects, and documentation adventures. GUE-trained divers are found in far-reaching global communities that offer many social and support opportunities alongside a host of unique and challenging underwater projects. GUE is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that uses a small but efficient staff.

Triton ignited the personal submersible revolution in 2008 with the TRITON 1000/2 and, two years later, became the de facto choice for professionals with the now industry-benchmark TRITON 3300/3. In 2016, Triton revolutionized yacht-based exploration with the Low Profile TRITON 1650/3 the ideal “super yacht sub”. In 2019, Triton delivered the world’s first commercially certified, Full Ocean Depth-capable submersible which broke multiple records during the Five Deeps and Ring of Fire expeditions. Today, Triton is redefining subsea luxury with Project Hercules, a collaboration with Espen Øino International. with more than 400 years of collective experience, Triton remains committed to producing the world’s finest submersibles.

Their mission is to increase public awareness about the issues impacting the world’s oceans and to support scientific research, education and ocean conservation initiatives through benefit concerts, brand partnerships, and entertainment industry events.

Using the latest tools and technology, NOAA Ocean Exploration explores unknown or poorly known areas of our deep ocean, making discoveries of scientific, economic, and cultural value. Through live video and data streams, online coverage, training opportunities, and events, we allow scientists, resource managers, students, members of the general public, and others to actively experience ocean exploration, allowing broader scientific participation, and cultivating the next generation of ocean explorers, and engaging the public in exploration activities. To better understand our ocean, our office makes exploration data available to the public. This allows us, collectively, to more effectively maintain ocean health, sustainably manage our marine resources, accelerate our national economy, and build a better appreciation of the value and importance of the ocean in our everyday lives.

Nekton’s mission is to protect the ocean, for all our planet’s life and for ourselves – because our existence depends on the ocean’s health. Nekton works with ocean nations to gain knowledge faster, so that we can better protect the ocean and share knowledge with the world. We therefore work in partnership with a wide range of organisations – from science to civil society, from media to government. 

Florida Atlantic University (FAU) Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute is a world class research organization with a focus on exploring the marine environments, studying key species and understanding the connection between humans and the ocean. Founded in 1971 as Harbor Branch Oceanographic Foundation, Inc., the Institute expanded its reach to over 100 miles along Florida’s east coast when it joined Florida Atlantic University in 2007. Located in St. Lucie County, our 144-acre campus along the Indian River Lagoon employs over 200 scientists, engineers, educators, staff and students. To this day, the Institute actively pursues solution-oriented research that addresses some of the most critical issues affecting coastal zones, oceans and human well-being.

Founded in 2013 as a non-profit organization, Beneath The Waves is dedicated to promoting ocean health and using science and technology to catalyze ocean policy. We are broad in our approach, but we focus our work on protecting threatened species, establishing protected areas, and creating nature-based solutions to climate change. They collaborate with governments, the general public, and the private sector to scale our impact. Their conservation science is driving tangible and defensible conservation outcomes, while bringing conservation messages to the masses through our unique storytelling and media platform.
