Aquatica Submarines announces Aquatica Foundation launch ahead of historic expedition to the bottom of Belize’s Blue Hole
As the Aquatica Submarines historic expedition to Belize’s Blue Hole approaches, President and CEO Harvey Flemming has announced the creation of the Aquatica Foundation. This new organization will bring together global experts and take actions towards three primary ocean imperatives: Exploration, Restoration and Education.
As the lead not for profit organization, the foundation is supporting Aquatica’s Blue Hole Belize 2018 Expedition in concert with the Expedition’s partner NGOs: Ocean Unite, Oceanic Global, Oceana, The Fabien Cousteau Ocean Learning Center, and Belize Audubon Society. Harvey Flemming will be taking on the role as the Managing Director and Founder, while Robert Falls will become Executive Director and Mr. Paul Jaffe will become Managing Director.
The Expedition is very excited to announce support from new sponsors Weeks Abroad and Empire Group. “The Weeks Abroad community is full of super-achievers who done some amazing things, so it seemed like a natural fit,” says Co-founder of Weeks Abroad and explorer, Joby Weeks. “We’re proud to be supporting the team on this landmark expedition.”
Group Chairman of Empire Group, Chris Crutcher, noted that “The Empire Group is very excited to be a sponsor for this historic Expedition. The endeavours that Aquatica is undertaking aligns very closely with the objectives of our Project Galileo.”
Aquatica Submarines is an emerging and innovative company in the manned submersible technology space. The company’s Stingray 500 submarine will be one of the two submersibles that will venture to the bottom of the Blue Hole.
