Tag the people you would want to dive there with ! 🐟 "Swimming with the hundreds of fish we encountered inside this cave. What a place .. and what a privilege to photograph this kind of scene."
"Sadly only 0.5% of New Zealand’s waters are in no take marine reserves. 90% of our seabirds are at risk of extinction. 61% of the worlds open ocean is unmanaged and being exploited. Scientists are calling for at least 30% of the world's oceans to be protected as ocean sanctuaries by 2030. If nothing is done the consequences are devastating to ocean health. I grew up by, and still live by the sea. It’s heartbreaking seeing with my own eyes what is happening to our oceans. What we can do ? Use our voice. Make a conscious effort to eliminate plastics from our lifestyle. Pick up litter on our beaches. Live sustainably. The ocean is a provider, culturally important and a lifeline to many, we have to protect it. Humans = destruction , there’s no doubt about it. Here’s to big changes so that we can see fish like this everywhere."
