Sometimes all you need is inspiration…

— This blog is currently on pause due to other commitments. However, we invite you to have a look at the stories from the past years. Greetings! —

We share the stories of people and projects that dedicate their efforts towards a positive future, with healthy and thriving oceans.

What started as an idea in 2017, has now grown to a well-received platform. Although, we are still a small independent non-profit project, the blog is well anticipated (more than 7,000 readers in 2020) and the community is growing week by week.

May you always be inspired!

Hannah Schartmann, Author

I am Hannah, a young lady fascinated by the ocean and its amazing animals. 

Climate change, plastic pollution and overfishing – the threats facing our oceans get more urgent every day. To contribute to such important cause feels like doing something meaningful and necessary. It has always been a childhood dream for me to protect the sea. Thus, working in marine conservation was the natural choice for me. I have obtained a bachelor degree in biology and a master degree in marine biology in Germany.

Whilst I was studying, I also volunteered with NGOs working in marine conservation to get as much as experience as possible. I strongly believe that every one of us can make a difference. It’s up to us to conserve as many species as possible as well as their habitat. It’s time to take action! Let’s protect the ocean together!
