This spring, the Dalio Foundation allowed for our Cape Eleuthera Institute Research Team to be a part of something never before done on the Cape. One of the Dalio family's philanthropic passions is ocean exploration, which is what inspired the Foundation to present an extremely generous donation of $1 million to our team at Cape Eleuthera. One half of this donation supports the deployment of the research vessel Alucia to Cape Eleuthera (through the Foundation's initiative, OceanX). The other half is designated toward a variety of research, education and outreach initiatives. This spring, we were able to collect preliminary data that will support the second Alucia mission to the Cape this August.
For more information on what our team was able to accomplish through the work done with the Alucia team, check out our video that dropped last week on World Oceans Day!
