CSA Ocean Sciences Inc (CSA) and Marine Ventures International Inc (MVI), both marine environmental consulting firms specializing in spatial data collection, analysis, and management, launched an initiative in Israel to certify a pool of Protected Species Observers (PSOs). This course is the first initiative of its kind in Israel and will certify 20 PSOs to support regional oil and gas industries and additional offshore and nearshore operations in the Eastern Mediterranean.

If endurance had a face, it would look like protected species observer (PSO) Chris Woolridge. Chris worked six rotations aboard MMT’s offshore survey vessel Deep Helder from May to November 2020 in support of surveys for offshore wind projects in the Northeast US. He described working aboard the vessel as a “special treat.”
