The UN Seahorse
The UN Seahorse is a virtual ship that traverses the world over the internet, but is modelled after a real Dutch naval research ship called "Hr. Ms Tydeman".

"We must understand and protect the ocean environment, we must use its bountiful resources in a sustainable way, we must preserve the ocean for the benefit and life of future generations and we must rejoice in the magnificence of this wonderful element of our planet" wrote G.L. Holland, Chairman of the IOC to the UN Seahorse team. This clearly illustrates the main aim of the virtual ship: to bring ocean knowledge to the attention of young and old around the world. To use the internet to generate a reservoir of ideas on the ocean.
