On April 2nd 2023, the schooner Tara sets sail again! Until September 2024, it will travel along the European coasts to study coastal ecosystems and the land-sea connection.

The objectives of this Tara Europa mission: are to measure the impact of human pollution on the marine microbiome, to identify molecules that indicate the good health and/or levels of pollution of an ecosystem, and to use the knowledge acquired to create tools for political decision support.

During this mission, the schooner will stop in a dozen countries to raise awareness among the general public about the preservation of the oceans.
