Dive into an ocean photographer's world | Thomas Peschak

24 22

Somersaulting manta rays, dashing dolphins, swarming schools of fish and munching sharks inhabit a world beneath the ocean’s surface that few get a chance to see. Conservation photographer Thomas Peschak visits incredible seascapes around the world, and his photos reveal these hidden ecosystems. “You can’t love something and become a champion for it if you don’t know it exists,” he says. Join Peschak in a new, immersive TED Talk format as he shares his stunning work and his dream for a future of respectful coexistence with the ocean.

    The oceans are wonderful. The best way to protect them is to create awareness of the life in this amazing habitat. As scubadivers we think that marine parks and liveaboard diving adventures such as on http://www.liveaboard.com are helping to get up close, experience the ocean life and eventually protect the oceans from over-fishing and from pollution.

    I am 100% with you Dude !! COEXISTING with Nature, not decimating it, if we help them thrive, than we will thrive, and sometimes that means hands off, and sometimes they need help, if we as a people of Earth, let any part of this Beautiful World die, come on, a piece of us dies with it, it's up to us, who's with me !? Peace
