THE TIME TO ACT IS NOW

  • Latest Update

    Thanks everyone for the following and support.

    We're working hard on getting the craft ready and updates done to some of the systems and electronics, however the first couple Hurricanes have already started forming and crossing the Pacific so this shuts my weather window down for the season until early next year. Which is a little sad, as i'm now armed with the knowledge and data from my last 5-day voyage, which makes me super confident on the crafts performance and lability in all conditions, so I'm looking forward to the restart next season, as soon as the weather window opens up again and allows me to restart.

    This gives us a great opportunity to expand and improve on the Ocean Classroom Sessions and build on the partnerships and testing and training to ensure I'm ready as soon as the weather window opens up again to leave in the Spring. We will be updating you every couple of months on our progress, so you can follow the journey.

    Thanks for all the support,

    Chris

    • Highlight what it will take to get to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050
    • Raise money to donate to Conservation International's environmental projects
    • Run ocean classroom sessions, broadcast to thousands of children around the world
    • Collect valuable data for the MBARI and conservation International research into ocean pollution, temperature and acidity levels.

    The Chris Bertish Foundation has been funded since 2020 through Chris Bertish - I’mPossible to be able to build this nonprofit. All funds raised through the wing project from May 25th - August 25th will be shared between Conservation International, Sea Shepherd, and the Chris Bertish Foundation. All money through the Chris Bertish Foundation will be split to reimburse the expenses of running the project and donated to The Two Oceans Education Foundation outreach & sponsorships, Operation Smile Operations, giving books to children in need, planting trees at Heyerdahl Climate Parks, & creating live ocean classrooms. Once the wing project is complete, the Foundation will operate as usual, collaborating on beach clean ups and having Chris speak at different schools highlighting conservation and ocean health issues all around the world, and being an ambassador for positive change. We’ll continue to work with our partners, creating more impact and awareness around the world. Chris will also continue to do mentorship programs with the 9 Miles Foundation in South Africa and sponsor books and educational curriculums to disadvantaged kids in different communities.
