Indo Ocean Project is thrilled to announce a new and exciting partnership with Daughters of the Deep, a dynamic international charity and community dedicated to advancing women’s roles in marine research, conservation, and careers. This collaboration marks a significant step forward in our shared commitment to preserving marine ecosystems and empowering women in all aspects of marine sciences and industries.

A Share Vision for the Oceans

Indo Ocean Project has always been at the forefront of marine research, education, and conservation efforts in the Indo-Pacific region. Our mission is to develop a network of marine research stations while providing hands-on training for aspiring marine biologists and divers. By partnering with Daughters of the Deep, we are reinforcing our dedication to these goals with a particular focus on promoting gender equality across all marine careers.

Daughters of the Deep is an inspirational organization that focuses on rising up against the socioeconomic barriers that restrict access to the education and practical experience needed for women to enter into marine careers. Their mission is to give young women who have a passion for the ocean the confidence and opportunity to try scuba diving, master the sciences, captain ships, and become the lead voices in the fight to save our seas. With this partnership, we aim to leverage our combined expertise and resources to create more opportunities for women in marine research, conservation, and industry roles.

What This Partnership Means

Enhanced Research and Conservation Efforts: Together, Indo Ocean Project and Daughters of the Deep will collaborate on various research projects aimed at understanding and protecting marine ecosystems. This includes studying coral reefs, marine biodiversity, and the impacts of climate change on our oceans.
  2. Increased Educational Opportunities: We will jointly offer educational programs, workshops, and internships designed to provide women with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in marine sciences and careers. These programs will be accessible to women from diverse backgrounds, encouraging more inclusivity in the field.
  3. Career Development and Mentorship: Our partnership will create pathways for women to enter and advance in various marine careers, from marine biology and conservation to marine engineering, policy, and industry roles. Mentorship programs and networking opportunities will help women navigate their career paths and achieve their professional goals
  4.  Community Building: Our partnership will foster a strong community of women in marine science and careers, offering networking opportunities, mentorship programs, and platforms for sharing knowledge and experiences. This supportive community will help women overcome challenges and excel in their careers.
  5. Advocacy and Awareness: Indo Ocean Project and Daughters of the Deep will work together to raise awareness about the importance of gender equality in marine sciences and the critical role women play in conservation efforts. Through campaigns, events, and outreach programs, we aim to inspire more women to pursue careers in this vital field.
