Preserving & restoring 
Arctic sea ice. 

Preserving Arctic sea ice is a critical component in the fight against climate change

If sea ice melt is left unaddressed we risk a BLUE OCEAN EVENT in which Arctic sea ice disappears entirely. This is a tipping point with catastrophic global consequences. 

Like bolstering our forests by planting trees, replacing sea ice is a critical piece of restoring our natural world.

Through our work we aim to protect global and local communities from the drastic effects of a warming Arctic, and additionally help preserve the natural biodiversity of a critical ecosystem. 

We recognize it will take many groups working on multiple strategies to completely reverse the catastrophic melt. Out role is to design and test restorative systems that are scalable, sustainable, and adaptable in close collaboration with local Arctic communities.

By thickening up the sea ice during the winter months, and insulating it with a snow layer at the end of winter. We will allow the sea ice to survive the summer months.

Our long term solution uses renewable existing technology , including water pumps, hydrogen fuel cells and autonomous underwater vehicles. Our objective is to build nimble, simple to control devices, which are designed to avoid unintended consequences.

In addition to global partners, all of our work will be done in collaboration with local communities who are most affected by the environmental consequences.

We are a multidisciplinary team  working collaboratively to address large-scale ecosystem restoration in the Arctic.

We each believe that restoring Arctic sea ice is a critical piece of climate change, alongside the need to remove excess greenhouse gases, move away from the use of fossil fuels, and other key initiatives. We've found our place in doing our part for the planet, and invite you to join us.
