This year, Triton Submarines and Nekton, will dive 4,000m into the Midnight Zone, where light can barely penetrate but where life still thrives. Their Mission: to observe the effects of Climate Change in this, as yet, unexplored area.
Working with the Seychelles and Maldives governments, the five-week expedition is targeting seamounts – vast underwater mountains that rise thousands of metres from the seafloor.
Nekton Mission II is part of Nekton’s First Descent series. View the trailer for Nekton Mission II below, and visit NektonMission.org for more information.
