The ocean is intrinsically entwined with our experience of the world, influencing our climate, our air, our food, our energy and more. Yet for many people, particularly those who live away from the coast, what is happening underwater, beyond our shores, feels too far away to contemplate or care about.


But re-establishing the vital connections between our culture and our coastlines, and a sense of shared responsibility for what happens in our ocean, is critical for a sustainable future. In discussion with Anna Heath at a Synchronicity Earth event, four extraordinary women who have dedicated their lives to conserving our oceans speak about the oceanic connections we all carry, the challenges facing marine conservation, and their hopes for the future.
