The Rubicon Foundation is an organization undertaking projects that:
Collaboration enhances outcomes by combining independent efforts to form a single force working toward the realization of common goals. The Rubicon Foundation is building a solid network of collaborators — public and private businesses, non-profit organizations, government entities and philanthropists.
Exploration and research are the genesis of scientific explanation. The Rubicon Foundation initiates projects that contribute to the expansion of human understanding.
The widespread availability of technologies such as the internet translates into an opportunity to reach an international audience. In today’s world we are able to witness the evolution of human exploration from the depths of the ocean to the edges of the known universe. We are able to share the experience of the unknown transforming into the understood. The Rubicon Foundation incorporates technology into projects that benefit from extended capabilities and availability. Through our educational and electronic library projects, we create a ripple effect that will develop tomorrow’s leaders. We provide resources to an international audience through the incorporation of neoteric methods. Electronic libraries and internet-based tools provide an unlimited potential for sharing knowledge, recent discoveries, current pursuits and effective outcomes.
Our environment is a global system — ocean, land and sky are interconnected. Destruction and damage is not limited to an isolated area nor is it an independent loss. The Rubicon Foundation strives to find balance between human demands and ecosystem preservation. To this end we pursue projects that expand mankind’s understanding and knowledge of our environment. We also undertake efforts to identify threats to ecosystems and to develop approaches that minimize the negative impact of human interactions. Our solutions address the root cause and, therefore, provide viable options that broaden the benefits that are realized in protected areas.
