Support ongoing advancements

The ecosystem of our planet is resilient but is nonetheless showing fissures from the imprint humans have left in their wake. The J. Craig Venter Institute remains committed, as it has over three decades, to continue to pursue science to mitigate and remediate this impact. In the forward to “The Voyage of Sorcerer II,” Dr. Erling Norrby declared, “It is now up to us—the global community—to use this knowledge to keep the oceans and the planet healthy. And we must collect more samples. For even with the astonishing amount of information already collected, the boat’s original circumnavigation represents a mere scratching of the ocean’s surface.”

We need your support to move this science forward.
