Vision NEMO has been in the running for a while. For a long time we at Fondation Franz Weber (FFW) have been thinking about an alternative to traditional aquariums and oceanariums. Oceanariums and aquariums destroy habitats, lead to animal suffering and are directly and jointly responsible for the extinction of species in the maritime environment.

The alternative is a virtual aquarium, or better, a virtual ocean. All of this is a possibility with the technological opportunities available right now and particularly those that are yet to come in the near future. The design’s versatility and creativity knows no boundaries. Habitats and species will be protected, not destroyed. No animals have to suffer and starve in captivity. Education and raising awareness are no hollow promises. Vision NEMO is the answer.

As FFW learned from the planned oceanarium in Basel, the hour of truth is upon us: We need Vision NEMO – not another unnecessary traditional aquarium! Now, research is being carried out, plans are being drafted, lobbying is underway and specifics are being detailed. This website is a result of that.

Vision NEMO is the future. Basel has the unique opportunity to become the first location for a Vision NEMO adventure park. A whole range of towns and locations across several continents are already interested. Basel would be the birthplace of Vision NEMO. The visionary and promising recipe for success could spread from here to the rest of the world.

Support us so that we can build a modern, visionary project for the future in the Heuwaage area: Vision Nemo.
