Tara. Two syllables that roll from one side to the other... This is the name of an extraordinary boat, an oceanographic schooner that has been sailing for almost two years in the Pacific Ocean. On board, sailors and passionate researchers try to unlock the secrets of coral reefs.
Tara Pacific Expedition
Launched in 2016, this expedition, named Tara Pacific, will end in the autumn of 2018. I had the chance to embark with a team of scientists and spend a week on board with them for a journalist assignment last February in the Philippines ... An unforgettable adventure.
It's a bit of reading ... 😉 I let you discover all this and I add below the video of the report made during the stopover in the Philippines by onboard journalist Noëlie Pansiot for Tara, about Pangatalan Island, which is now a jewel again thanks to the efforts of the Sulubaai Foundation…
This fantastic experience in the Philippines even took me a little further, to Vietnam ... It was not planned.
I also discovered what it was like to spend several days on the high seas, on a round-hull yacht ... 🤮 😂 I'll surely tell you that one day ... 😎
