“We cannot protect something we do not love, we cannot love what we do not know, and we cannot know what we do not see. And touch. And hear.” – Richard Louv.
For many people, the ocean is a nice place to relax, unwind, and gather thoughts. We sit at the beach and watch wave after wave come in. But the ocean is so much more than that. It’s difficult to imagine the wide array of life that thrives beneath the surface of the water if you’ve never been diving or snorkelling. It’s not like going for a walk in the woods, where you can immediately see some of what nature has to offer. That’s why it’s so important to share images and videos of the beautiful creatures that call our rivers, lakes, and oceans home, making visible the beauty of these aquatic environments.
