The Tara Expeditions project is affiliated to the United Nations Programme for the Environment. Through the work of scientists and also artists, we are observing our changing environment, and learning more about the complex and fragile ecosystem called Earth.
Thanks to the initiative of the French designer agnès b. and Etienne Bourgois, Tara has accomplished 6 successful expeditions to Greenland, Antarctica, Patagonia, southern Georgia, and the Arctic.
Our 7th expedition, Tara Oceans, began in 2009 thanks to the support of private and institutional funds.
After three years of expeditions, the goelette arrives in Lorient, France, the 31st of march 2012.
In this occasion, the journal is giving life to memories of the crew board, scientists and artists aboard of this exceptional adventure.
