WELCOME! THE 'CLEANER OCEANS CLUB' IS A CHARITABLE FOUNDATION DEDICATED TO OCEAN CONSERVATION, RESEARCH AND AWARENESS. WE WORK WITH OTHER LIKE MINDED INSTITUTIONS AND ACADEMICS LOOKING FOR WAYS TO REPAIR THE HARM THAT MAN HAS DONE TO MARINE LIFE, WITH ESPECIAL FOCUS ON PLASTIC WASTE AND DWINDLING WILD FISH STOCKS. WE ALSO PROMOTE OCEAN AWARENESS WITH OUR MISS OCEAN WATER SPORTS EVENT.
DWINDLING FISH STOCKS - Food security is a major problem the world will have to face as the available land for to grow crops reduces in competition with land for housing, as the population expands. The situation is far from sustainable and a bubble that will burst. When the bubble bursts it will cause the deaths of millions of people, where additional farming will create more carbon dioxide to heat the climate, making more land barren in a vicious circle that we must take steps to prevent happening.
Around 10% of the world (700,000,000 million people) rely on the ocean for food, but in addition to our poor land management record, we are also polluting the seven seas with plastic that is toxic - so reducing the number of fish that we might harvest for food.
OCEAN CLEANING INNOVATION - This amazing autonomous boat called "SeaVax", was on display at the Old Billingsgate exhibition centre in London on the 9-10th of November 2015 for Innovate 2015. Since that time a company called Bluebird Marine Systems has built a test tank and a robotics laboratory - and worked out a low cost method of launching and recovering the full size vessel. All of this was achieved on a small budget at cost, with the help of volunteers, students and an experienced steering committee.
TECHNOLOGY COULD PROVIDE US WITH A MEANS TO PUT US BACK ONTO A PATH TO RECOVERY. WE AIM TO UNDERTAKE VITAL RESEARCH IN THE FIELD OF MARINE ROBOTICS TO TRY TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IS POSSIBLE IF WE APPLY SOME OF THE BEST INNOVATIONS, SUCH AS THE USE OF SATELLITES TO TRACK OCEAN CHANGES AND CURRENTS, THAT MAY BE APPLIED TO OCEAN CLEANING TECHNIQUES.
THE 'SEAVAX' IS ONE SUCH PROJECT THAT IN OUR VIEW HOLDS THE POTENTIAL TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IF IT CAN BE APPLIED EFFECTIVELY. WE ARE SEEKING FUNDING TO BE ABLE TO MANAGE RESEARCH TO ESTABLISH IF OCEAN CLEANING IS A VIABLE OPTION IN THE SEARCH FOR A TRULY CIRCULAR BLUE ECONOMY.
