Ocean Health Impact Solutions

Conservation and regeneration of ocean ecosystems and species, through research, ocean literacy, and digital content.

Since the dawn of time, humans have always been fascinated by the ocean. At the heart of Blue Cradle’s philosophy, we are all connected to the ocean.

Large research vessels are too costly and fundamentally polluting. Our goal is to operate from a quiet, low emissions, less resource intensive vessel.

Blue Cradle’s mission is to make ocean science and research accessible to all.

Our objective

To design and provide a  monohull (or multihull) research vessel and operate from Whakaraupō Lyttelton, Ōtautahi Christchurch, Aotearoa New Zealand (NZ) conducting expeditions in the Exclusive Economic Zone, the Southern Ocean and the South Pacific region.
