Art meets science

On the science communication blog “Oceans and the Seas”, art meets science. We communicate cutting-edge marine research in a novel and easily accessible way by providing a platform for illustrators and researchers to engage. Science communication is what makes research matter. We hope we can spread some of the excitement and passion that we share for the marine environment to contribute towards better understanding and more effective conservation.

Join the staff!
