New Series: Dive Philippines – Part 6 (Watch Video)

Published

on

Part six in our new series of videos from the Philippines features a VR video from the diver’s paradise that is Puerto Galera.

Philippines Dive Adventures: “The popularity of the region for divers of all nationalities and diving preferences is apparent as soon as one steps foot onto the arrival pier, the rumble of air compressors, the dive certification agency flags and banners waving in the warm breeze, and the happy, relaxed looking wetsuit-clad divers moving around through the town all contribute to the promise of exotic and memorable days ahead to those stepping off onto the arrival jetty

Looking at our beautiful seas has us dreaming about diving again. While waiting for that day to come, experience Puerto Galera’s vast marine life at home.

Save Our Seas Foundation announce Ocean Storytelling Photography Grant

Published

on

Stories spark the imagination and nurture ideas. They are, without doubt, our most powerful form of communicating and connecting, both with each other and with the world around us.
The Save Our Seas Foundation (SOSF) have a strong history of supporting marine conservation and education projects and believe that to truly translate knowledge into effective, meaningful change we must communicate through engaging stories. An inspiring or compelling story can spur positive action in ways that no presentation of facts can.

SOSF are delighted to introduce their new emerging Ocean Storyteller Grants, which will focus on photography in its inaugural year. The photography grant is led by our own director of storytelling and National Geographic photographer Thomas Peschak, in collaboration with Kathy Moran and Jennifer Samuel from National Geographic.

While they are looking specifically for photographers who can tell conservation stories about our oceans, the call is not limited to underwater photography. Applicants should think broadly – story topics can range from the animals themselves to fisheries or the communities whose lives are intertwined with marine life. Four successful grantees will each receive a fully funded assignment to shoot a conservation photo story on location (including day rate and travel), under the direct mentorship of the Ocean Storytelling Grant team.
