PROTECT WHAT YOU LOVE
Hi! I'm Alice.
I like to spend my days eye-gazing with humpback whales, hanging out with penguins on the Antarctic ice, or freediving with turtles in my salty backyard in Byron Bay, Australia.
Generally when I'm not in the ocean, I'm spending my days trying to protect it. As a marine biologist, wildlife guide & scientific communicator, I hope to use my degree & knowledge to inspire positive change.
WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?
The ocean supports life on this planet, and provides us with most of the air that we breathe. And yet all of the threats it's facing - plastic pollution, overfishing, climate change & acidification - are caused by us.
Right now, plastic can be found frozen into Arctic sea ice, eaten by creatures at the bottom of the deepest ocean, and even inside human placentas.
This is a huge threat for our own health, and the health of the planet we depend on. Learning more about this problem is a great place to start.
We are the problem, but we're also all capable of making a positive difference, and we have all the solutions we need to start right now.
