To celebrate its 15th anniversary, the World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS) is releasing a one-of-a-kind t-shirt.
WoRMS can be seen as the number one authoritative classification and catalogue of marine names.
Completing and correcting WoRMS requires an enormous continuing effort and is entirely dependent on the expertise and time of the editors. To celebrate its 15th birthday and 15 years of collaboration with (taxonomic) experts all over the globe, WoRMS designed an exclusive t-shirt.
By purchasing your WoRMS t-shirt, you support the sea. All profit goes to the VLIZ Philanthropy project “Support the WoRMS editors”. Your purchase will be used to coordinate and disseminate funds to the WoRMS editors. Thanks to these funds, editors will be able to continue to fill gaps in coverage, expand the content and enhance the quality of taxonomic databases, attract interns and students to assist in the verification of taxonomic information, and purchase scientific literature.
The WoRMS t-shirt consists of 100% organic cotton and is produced fair-trade.
