The Veolia Foundation alongside Tara protecting coral reefs
The oceans, which absorb nearly a quarter of all CO2 emissions, play a decisive role in climate regulation. Over the last 13 years, the schooner Tara has travelled 350,000 kilometres studying the impact of climate change on our oceans and developing the awareness of young people and the general public about the environment. The Veolia Foundation supports the “Tara Pacific” expedition, devoted to the coral reefs, which left Lorient (France) on 28 May.
