Summary

A collection of remarkable stories from the founders of charity Ocean Culture Life. Explore Earth’s most remote open oceans, with telling insights from the extraordinary heroes making new discoveries every day.

The Ocean Speaks brings together more than 45 ocean culture life enthusiasts who have taken ocean protection into their own hands, documenting the unknown and telling stories that aim to connect humans with water. Whether they are divers, marine biologists, surfers, influencers, conservationists, photojournalists, or filmmakers, each of these ocean lovers is playing a part in deepening our understanding of our planet’s largest life support system, 80% of which remains unmapped, unobserved, and unexplored.

Split geographically by oceans and continents, the stories include a project that documents the world’s largest population of tiger sharks in the Maldives, divers who unofficially patrol a UNESCO world heritage site near the volcanic ‘Ring of Fire’ in the Tropical Eastern Pacific, a visit to the touching but ghostly turtle cemetery in Malaysia, and incredible natural spectacles like the mass spawning of grouper in French Polynesia, or the humpback whales who flock to the remote Silver Bank in the Dominican Republic to birth and mate.

With over 200 underwater images from every ocean on the globe, The Ocean Speaks is a stunning celebration of ocean life, a unique glimpse into the biggest habitat on the planet, and marks a small point on the journey towards protecting it. This inspiring collection of testimonies is a must for anyone concerned about our waters, and those wanting to protect our environment. The battle to protect the deep blue is ongoing, but stories like these are taking us in the right direction.

Ocean Culture Life is a charity dedicated to promoting the conservation, protection, and improvement of the physical and natural marine environment, by widening and deepening public understanding of the ocean's issues and challenges.

Author Biography

Founded by Matt Porteous and Tamsin Raine, Ocean Culture Life is an inspiring collective of 500 ocean enthusiasts from all parts of the world. United in their mission to save the ocean and frustrated by lack of funding and research towards it, this collective has taken the cause into their own hands. While acknowledging that they will never have the funds to finance huge campaigns, instead they use the power of storytelling and collaboration to unite people, giving a voice to the ocean because only when people are passionate about the ocean will we be able to save it.
