This is the first film in a series of programs being created to connect people to our ocean. We are working on a new book about our ocean, as well as creating a growing movement of ocean activists in schools, groups and organizations around the world. Our goal is to encourage everyone to explore, be inspired, and take action for our ocean and environment.
Contact us if you are interested in our partnership program. We want people to understand their interconnection to the sea. Every breath we take, we breathe ocean. The ocean is underrepresented in education and often misrepresented by the media. We need to help everyone understand how important the ocean is in our lives. We want people to have a conversation about the importance and greatness of our ocean every single day.
