About the Charity

Collaboration towards a healthier ocean


Putting our values into action

Our values are the compass that guides us in everything we do.
Our culture is formed when we put these values into action.


Respect needs to come from top down but also go from bottom up. It is about creating a working environment where all employees and partners are listened to and valued. It means treating all team members in the same considerate way you would like to be treated yourself.


Keywords for our charity are well organized, educated, dedicated and experienced personnel, well equipped and with open and trustful communication.


We support and share responsibility with the members of our team and partners. Everything is everyone’s responsibility and we own our collective results together. We are empowered to make decisions that are best for the long-term results.


We are acting with strong ethics as a priority for everyone representing the foundation as well as the foundations behaviour as a whole. We are honest, transparent and committed to doing what is best for our partners and our mission. We have no tolerance for politics, hidden agendas or passive-aggressive behaviour.


We are proud for providing complete visibility into the successes, and failures. It is an integral part of our culture as we collaborate and work towards a common goal across functions.


It starts and ends with the ocean

Our history starts with the Galápagos Islands and the necessity to preserve this unique environment and biodiversity. This insight, and the fact that 80% of the ocean has never been explored, lit the spark to contribute with unique technology to support scientific projects in the Galápagos and elsewhere to try to save the Oceans.

Our charity has sprung out of Robert Wilson Marine Technologies (RWMT) but is independent of that business group and is open to cooperation with others that has a conviction of the necessity to preserve the oceans.

However, Imo Oceanum is the only charity with access to the very unique non-invasive sub-bottom scanning technology that RWMT has developed for mapping the bottom sediment layer, capable of locating hidden objects and structures that otherwise would be difficult or impossible to detect.

Our first projects are in the Galápagos together with Robert Wilson Marine Technologies (RWMT), in cooperation with the Galápagos National Park Directorate (GNPD) and the Charles Darwin Foundation (CDF).
