In 2009 Ranger traveled to Spain’s Canary Islands. The crew aimed to document the seamounts and seabeds of the archipelago using traditional photography as well as an underwater robot.
The expedition’s goal was to help Spain make progress toward protecting 10 percent of its marine environment by 2012, as required by the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity. The expedition was a project supported by the Fundación Biodiversidad.
