This is a short two minute video update on the Heraclitus rebuild and forthcoming expeditions.

HERACLITUS, the Institute of Ecotechnics research ship, has sailed our seas for forty years, travelled 270,000 nautical miles, sailed all the world’s oceans except the Arctic, and staged twelve epic expeditions. It has been nautical home to hundreds of seafarers, young and old, from fifty countries. The HERACLITUS conducts conservation research and action missions—protecting ecosystems and biodiversity and documenting the quickening cycle of decline in our oceans from ocean warming, acidification, sea-level rise and extreme weather to coral-reef bleaching, plastic pollution and overfishing, and conducting oral history documentation of coastal cultures.
