Project Intention

Our oceans are under threat. A threat we don’t often see because most of us only see the ocean from the outside looking in, and we can’t directly see the impact of toxins and climate change on marine ecology. And isn’t our life itself now like swimming continuously round and round in a fish bowl?

You don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone.

But if you can’t sea it, how will you know it’s gone?
