“I am but a single droplet but together the droplets make an ocean”
Ocean Odyssey is the journey of my diving and photographic adventures but it’s also a site born of hope and desire to raise awareness about the ocean. I see the outstanding beauty of the sea but also feel deeply the plight of it’s majestic, endangered inhabitants. I hope to inspire others to think more about the ocean through the beauty caught within the lens of my camera, the truth in the articles about some of the oceans worst atrocities and the hope and inspiration of everyday acts of human kindness by true oceanic heroes.
I am unsure at present what I may be able to achieve in in raising awareness about the ocean but I find I can no longer stand by and watch as marine eco-systems get destroyed, species become extinct and the livelihoods of millions are put at risk as global temperatures rise.
We can all make a difference by simply thinking about our actions; for instance, by not buying shark fin soup, trinkets made of coral and other underwater invertebrate shells and taking care to only eat unendangered fish from sustainable sources. With a little bit of thought you can add your ‘drop’ to the ocean, so it is healthy and thriving for many generations to come. It is, after all, essential to the very air we breathe.
