Biopixel Oceans Foundation supports marine research, exploration and education.

We fund research into our oceans and the marine life within them to impact conservation decisions, learn more about under-researched species and instill a passion for the ocean in younger generations.

Our Focus

The types of research we aim to foster include:

Give one of our finned friends a name and follow its journey as it makes its way across the ocean. Sharks are tagged with satellite transmitters to learn more about movement and migration patterns, identifying habitats key to their survival, their relationship with other marine animals, population dynamics, and their vulnerability to human threats such as fishing and shark culling programmes.

Your $5,000 donation will cover the cost of one new satellite tag. As the benefactor, you will be given the opportunity to name your shark and follow his/her movements. Want to adopt a shark, but don’t have $5,000? Why not get your work place, social club, class or entire school involved? We welcome and encourage collective adoptions.


Biopixel Oceans Foundation offers you the opportunity to join one of our research expeditions in the Great Barrier Reef, Coral Sea or beyond. Research is conducted from Argo Expeditions, a 27m luxury yacht.

While research is being conducted, you could snorkel or dive on the reef, sit back and relax, and/or have your very own ‘Shark Week’ experience as we catch, tag and release sharks. Corporate retreats aboard Argo can be tailored to include a research element, that’s a unique corporate getaway experience.

The money you spend to join or charter an expedition will contribute to ongoing research supported by the Biopixel Oceans Foundation. To find out more, please email info@biopixeloceans.org.
