We would be highly grateful for your donation because the oceans provide 75% of the world's oxygen. Helping maintain a healthy ocean environment benefits all humanity and every living thing on the planet.
We want to help purchase floaters (technical equipment) for the University of St. Thomas. Floaters are free-floating drifting buoys deployed in oceans to measure currents and the ocean environment.
Support the MATE (MARINE ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION (MATE) CENTER). The Center's mission is to help prepare America's future workforce for ocean-related occupations. The MATE Center utilizes information from employers to improve and develop educational programs focusing on marine technology. The Center focuses on community college education and creating strong links between community colleges and high schools, technical schools, 4-year institutions, research institutions, industry, government, military, and labor organizations.
We also wish to support coral reef research and ocean recovery.
