Sara King was a passionate influencer and supporter of GVI Trust. Starting her Marine Ventures in Madagascar and working with GVI in Fiji before Co-Founding evolve abroad where she took up the adventure at Sea to lead a research project on ocean plastics. Sadly, Sara passed away on the 1st of July 2019 in a terrible accident out at Sea. In honour of Sara, this project is to help others who share the same passion enter into Marine Research and continue the research and protection of our oceans.

The Ocean makes up 71% of the earths surface, and there is still so much that we do not know about it, yet we continue to pollute and damage our ocean eco-systems. We need a large number of researchers and passionate ambassadors to monitor, research, protect and promote the ocean across the world. Together we are all responsible.

This scholarship project is continuing the vital research needed and providing resources, funding and access to young people to learn and become future ambassadors to lead change and protect our oceans.

This project tackles a number of UN SDG’s but focuses on Goal #14 Life below water. We aim to recruit and train a wide network of researchers and ambassadors that will influence communities around the world, to work together to protect and save our oceans.
