The 100 for the Ocean is a project that brings together 100 of the world's leading ocean photographers to raise awareness about the importance of the ocean and to raise funds for ocean conservation. These photographers have donated their time and talent to create a collection of stunning images that capture the beauty and fragility of our ocean.
The ocean is a vital part of our planet and provides countless benefits to all living beings. It produces over half of the oxygen we breathe, regulates the Earth's climate, and is a major source of food and medicine. The Ocean is responsible for feeding over 3 billion people worldwide. It is extremely sad and concerning that it is facing many threats, including pollution, overfishing, and climate change. It is our responsibility to protect and preserve this dear resource for our future generations.
Some well-known photographers who are part of the 100 for the Ocean project include Paul Nicklen, Cristina Mittermeier and Brian Skerry. These photographers have dedicated their lives to capturing the beauty and wonder of the ocean and have used their photographs to inspire people around the globe to take action.
This is now your opportunity to protect our ocean by purchasing a print from the 100 for the Ocean collection. All proceeds from the sale go towards ocean conservation. You can choose to purchase a loose print or a framed print, and you will be supporting a great cause while also adding a beautiful piece of art to your home or office. There are many different images to choose from.
I am truly honoured to be part of this amazing initiative and I hope that we can all make the difference to the ocean crisis. As photographers, specifically "Nature Photographers we have the power to move people with our images.
