Exulans provides enforcement and compliance solutions to support marine conservation. We work globally and keep an office in Mountain View, CA.
We take our name from Diomedea exulans, the Wandering albatross. Exulans spends most of its life soaring over the ocean, regularly tracking fishing vessels as they ply their trade. Exulans features prominently in maritime lore, and we are inspired by its reputation as a constant watcher of the ocean.
