The Global Warrior Project seeks to explore the world's extreme environments to measure, to benchmark, to monitor changes both good and bad for the scientific community.

Our mission is to put a better, more immediate “finger on the pulse of our planet” so that we, as a species, can make better decisions, societally, commercially, and politically as to our immediate actions and our future intentions. We do this by measuring:
Species | Pollution | Populations | Tipping Points | Weather | Water
To inform, educate and engage the widest audience about the importance of the oceans in humankinds’ plight to survive, creating a better respect and understanding of the most important asset to life on Earth. Using ordinary, everyday people not only develops balanced, caring souls but spreads our stories to a wider audience, hopefully engaging them in the biggest crisis we have witnessed so far.

Our oceans are vital to life on Earth. Let’s save them.
The ocean covers 70% of our world, stretching from coast to coast.
The average depth of the ocean is about 12,100 feet. The deepest part of the ocean is called the Challenger Deep which is approximately 36,200 feet deep.
It is estimated that 91% of ocean species have yet to be classified, and that 95% of the ocean remains unexplored.
Oceans affect weather patterns, produce oxygen, support nutrient recycling and maritime heritage, and provides food and medicine resources.
80% of all pollution to marine environments comes from the land.
Marine-based drugs have been discovered that treat some types of cancer, antibiotic resistant staphylococcus infections, pain, asthma, and inflammation. For example, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and U.S. Department of Agriculture researchers found that a fish-killing toxin has the potential to kill or slow the growth of cancer cells.
