This is a 3-step process
IDEASYou send us ideas of pressing ocean issues you want scientists to solve. What did you see that bugged you on your last beach walk? What really got to you in that last article you read about the oceans? What ocean problem just has to be fixed before your kid grows up?
We have a million dollars a cycle that says with your idea and the scientists' expert solution - we can fix this. We will build the thing, write the code, or launch the device to resolve your issue. Then...we'll repeat the process.
By combining everyone's awareness of where the ocean is sick with the willingness of the marine science community to help, we can make a difference.
