OCEAN SCIENCE - in partnership with:
Do you care passionately about action to safeguard the planet? Especially mitigating the effects of climate change?
Blue planet showed us why the oceans are important, so Pelican of London has partnered with the University of Plymouth to give young people the unique opportunity to see this for themselves. Join us on our 10 day ocean science voyages to become an ambassador for our oceans, whilst experiencing adventure and challenge, learning to sail the tall ship Pelican of London.
When aboard you will be working with industry experts, using specialised equipment to carry out engaging, exciting and scientifically accurate research. Through this research you will contribute towards marine science by collecting high quality data, which will be made available for marine institutes for climate and environmental studies.
We are open for applications from everyone! From individuals who have never even visited the coast, to scientists needing a research vessel. This is the perfect environment to expand your knowledge, and increase your experience of practical research that can't be done in a classroom.
So come and join us to work together with professional scientists and like minded piers to save the planet onboard an amazing vessel.
Whilst onboard you will also be an important member of the ships crew. You will learn to sail the ship, navigate, be a watch-keeper, climb the rigging and much more! To find out more about the sailing aspect of this voyage please visit our "Sail Training" page.
The United Nations have declared a Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, running from 2021 to 2030. By encouraging the next generation of marine biologists, oceanographers, environmental scientists and leaders in change, we plan to feed the worldwide community. Over the next 10 years, this generation will have the passion, skills, expertise and technology to sustain the oceans we need for the future we want.
