BCSS is an innovative platform hosting the first permanent Ocean Observatory focused on multi-ecosystem time series research in Africa.
We aim to use our strategic location and data to support environmental management at a local level, facilitate regional collaboration, and contribute to international scientific programs.
The BCSS field marine station and laboratory present a unique, zero-waste field station model, run entirely on solar energy. Scientists are welcome to visit the BCSS station to conduct their research while using the facilities and laboratory.
BCSS welcomes filmmakers, photographers, TV/cinema/documentary producers and others. Everything required to ensure a successful completion of the project will be organised, from permits and boat use to catering and guiding.
The scientific dive center supports technical and scientific diving with the aim to support researchers conducting field projects, carrying out surveys, filming documentaries or location scouting. Our team is able to train new research divers, assist in planning and leading scientific expeditions. Support is also available for media crews.
