To find out exactly what is happening to our oceans and get a better, more immediate, pulse of the planet. Critical data gathered.

We're still collecting donations

On the 5th January 2024 we'd raised £6,281 with 49 supporters in 56 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

Crucial Exploration

We are:

Taking one beautiful and hugely comfortable #tallship

Half filling it with ordinary people from all walks and many nations

And half with eminent scientists

Equipping it with the latest #technology and #instrumentation

Allowing it to look, listen, learn and #communicate

Then #sailing it in waters seldom sailed and never tested

Telling its story and our crew #stories 

And engaging a wider and deeper #audience

Making this accessible for all

#Joinus as we find out exactly what is happening to our #oceans

Please help fund places for those who otherwise would not be able to do this - available #now

Developing People to Discover Change to Educate us All

If we do not do this then how do we know anything we are doing to help our climate crisis is actually working?

Ocean Warrior's Resolute Expeditions

We will put a better, more immediate, finger on the pulse of the planet.

10 years | 100,000 nautical miles | Hundreds of Ordinary People - telling their stories | Leading Scientists | A very Exceptional Sailing Vessel | Critical Data Gathered and Portrayed near Real-Time


It is crucial over the next 10 years to find out whether anything we are doing to tackle climate change is actually working - or not. Help us FINDOUT and make decision makers accountable #COP28UAE

I have witnessed, first-hand, changes in the Polar Regions for 39 years and I started my working life in environmental science. We don’t have an effective, real-time, means of “taking the pulse of the planet” in these regions and if we are to be proper guardians of our planet and ecosystem, we need to benchmark what is happening, further our understanding of the complex processes involved and continually monitor them.

Over the last 22 years, my project Ice Warrior has trained over 450 novices, conducted 7 major expeditions, and been cited in leading scientific publications and magazines around the globe for our contributions to science.

During this time I’ve been lucky enough to put together a powerful body of prominent, leading scientists, advisers, and organisations to help us gather critical data so that decisions about our future, our direction, our civilisation even, can be made with intelligence and security. And in a timely fashion.

Now, we have expanded to Global Warrior and are including ocean, desert, mountain and jungle environs.

This will be the most extensive, comprehensive ground truthing of our planet.

Those undertaking these explorations and working alongside professional oceanographers will be Citizen Scientists who are ordinary, everyday people from all walks of life, corners of the globe and all echelons of society. We as a species thrive when we have a sense of purpose. We also acknowledge and applaud those within our own communities who seek to better themselves for good cause. Each of these participants has a human story to tell. One that captures the imagination and following of a fervently interested audience who then champion our cause for us and, in turn, learn about and respect Mother Nature themselves. It’s a win-win. 


Now, with Ocean Warrior, we have the expansion plan, we have the scientists and supporters, we need your help.

This why we need to know more......


Enrol – Support – Sponsor – Tell Everyone

Ocean Warrior

In September 2023 we conducted two Foundation Expeditions around Svalbard, whose aims were to establish how to use our expedition sailing vessel, SV Linden, to best effect and exactly what science we would be doing onboard. These are some the conclusions of our Chief Scientific Adviser, Prof. Icarus Allen.

Now we need to raise the monies to help more unprivileged people get onboard.
