Ascension Island Government Support

Thank you to the Administrator and staff at Ascension Island Government.

This expedition would not be possible without the assistance and enthusiastic support of the Ascension Island Government who are project partners and have been instrumental in the organisation of the project.

In particular we'd like to extend our gratitude and appreciation to:

  • Mr Colin Wells - Administrator of Ascension Island, for enabling the project to take place.

  • Mr Stedson Stroud - AIG Conservation Officer/Fisheries.

  • Ms Jolene Sim - AIG Assistant Conservation Officer.

In addition to assistance with logistics, Ascension  Island Government is generously providing access to their launch Wide Awake for diving operations.

The Conservation Department are providing the team with lab space and offices at their Conservation Offices in George Town.
