Smithsonian launches global marine biodiversity project with $10 million donation
Date:10/25/2012

to look at the marine realm now.

"For years I have watched how standardized observations made around the globe have transformed our understanding of how tropical forests work," said Nancy Knowlton, the Sant Chair for Marine Science at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. "We will now be able to do the same thing for the ocean, with this MarineGEO, taking advantage of the latest technologies that allow us to keep track of everything from microbes to whales."

The Smithsonian is uniquely qualified to conduct such an ambitious marine project because of its wide range of expertise and collections.

The Smithsonian has developed clear goals for the Tennenbaum Marine Observatories. The donation will provide funding for the establishment of research sites and the beginnings of the coastal marine database. The information that scientists gather will continually provide a greater understanding of how coastal ecosystems function, which in turn can help improve how these areas are used and managed.
