The #ocean is a place of wonder, of beauty, of complexity and of the unknown. The ocean is simply vast… Thank you, @NautilusMag, for the opportunity to talk about my passion for the ocean and its #protection. #30x30 #
Very interesting interactive @guardian webpage, showcasing how human pollutants such as ghost gear, noise, oil and microplastics affect marine life as we descend through the different zones of our #ocean. #30x30
