Tara Expeditions Foundation
Coral reefs cover less than 0.2% of the ocean's surface, yet they include nearly 30% of known marine biodiversity. Their health is crucial to the diversity of species, and also for humanity. Studying this fragile and endangered ecosystem is a priority since a large number of reefs have been disappearing in recent years.
Tara Pacific expedition is unique in that it will cover such a huge geographical area – the Pacific Ocean – where over 40% of the world’s coral reefs are concentrated. A study on this scale has never before been accomplished.
Sarah worked as the onboard correspondent for 6 countries and 4,000 nautical miles. Her work aboard included videos for Tara, written articles, photography, and shooting / producing videos for Tara Foundation media partners FT1 (French Television), NHK (Japanese Television), and Walt Disney France. On board her job was to produce and creative direction footage and images that were captured. She worked with the underwater cinematographer and aerial operators to document the expedition above and below the surface.
Sarah’s portion spanned 4,ooo nautical miles and the countries of Wallis/Futuna, Tuvalu, Kiribati, Chuuk, Guam, and Orgasarwa.
