A human slant on ocean opportunities: Link with 'Operation Raleigh'

David M. Lane

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The combined goal of conservation and utilization of ocean resources requires awareness of need amongst those who make decisions, combined with up to date information. The author presents one mechanism whereby both these requirements are promoted through the involvement of young people on practical projects in an expedition environment. The UK based international expedition Operation Raleigh has been ongoing since 1984 involving young people from many nations in science, community and adventure projects worldwide. The organization and motivation of the expedition and the experience of one particular group of projects on the Great Barrier Reef are described to show how marine research can be carried out while enhancing the personal development and awareness of individuals.
