OCEAN71 was commissioned by the Octopus Foundation to visit the small Italian island of Lampedusa, where is located one of the main medical centers for marine turtles in the Mediterranean sea. Here, we will follow and document innovative medical treatments and scientific studies, all aimed at better understanding an ancient animal whose origins date back 250 million years.

Finally, we left Gouvia marina very early this morning. The window of « calmness » is supposed to last less than 24 hours. There are still threatening clouds in the sky, but they are manageable. The navigation is supposed to last the day. Our ETA (Estimated Time Arrival) should be 7 PM in Orikum’s very small marina. We have followed the massive mountains for hours, until we reached the tip of the Karaburun peninsula. At about 6 PM, we were in Vlora bay. Sheltered ? Not really, lightnings and thunder started the second we entered the bay. It is under heavy rain that we finished our navigation and entered the small marina where two other crew members (Christophe and Margaux) were waiting for us since yesterday. Finally, we made it ! We finish the day, organizing our base camp, between our boat and the house that we rented on the harbour. Everything is under control. So far.
After meeting and now partnering with Kyle Neumann, a PhD student in Marine Science at UCSB, our students are excited to build the OpenROV in Robotics class. We hope to collaborate with UCSB and SB City College to explore more of our local ocean and coastline. This year our school is focusing on ocean health as our theme to go beyond regular classroom studies.
