Inform and raise public awareness
The Total Foundation makes sure that a “public information and awareness campaign” is included in each of the marine biodiversity projects it participates in. Some programs, in fact, are exclusively designed for this purpose. What’s at store is the revelation of the world’s beauty as well as its fragility, through exchanges and actions in the field.
Endlessly increase knowledge
The preservation of marine biodiversity demands the expertise of the best in the field in many disciplines, and primarily the natural, economic and social sciences. To ensure that the paths of these specialists intercept one another, the Total Foundation organizes encounters. It also participates in the training of highly-qualified teams to ensure this work continues in the future.
Scientists train the oceanographers of tomorrow at the Pierre and Marie Curie University.
The players in preserving biodiversity meet to size up the situation every two years during the Port-Cros Symposium.
