Such a delight chatting with Charlotte a few weeks ago💙
Oh wow, this Little Planet series created by @maritimeoceancollection @speseas_tt @anjganase certainly make my 💙 sing.
The ocean is my work place, my playground, my school, my sanctuary, my lifeline. I was privileged to have the Caribbean Sea on my doorstep while growing up. Sadly, in the 30 years that I’ve been exploring, I’ve witnessed a huge decline, because of our actions, in the ocean ecosystems that I fell in love with. So now, I’m working to better know and understand ocean life, so that we can better value and steward it, but we all need to play a part. This World Ocean Day, let’s commit to responsibly using, protecting and restoring the big blue so that it benefits not just current and future generations, but also all of the life dependent on it.💙
A few years ago, I headed out to St. Peter and St. Paul Archipelago. I had never heard of this spot in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean but it did not disappoint - we were constantly surrounded by mobula rays (📷), sixgill sharks and booby birds. I distinctly remember watching the rays dance while I exercised on @oceanx’s MV Alucia’s top deck - hard to beat views! There was so much life around these oceanic islands! This was a place that few had ever ventured to and yet, when we journeyed down into the deep sea, our trash was everywhere! It was a sobering reminder that even the wildest places on Planet Earth are not untouched.
