OceanNEnvironment: Work From the Masters
A couple of weeks ago I had the absolute pleasure of working with Michael AW on Cebu in the Philippines. Michael is an extremely talented and highly published underwater photographer who has an incredible passion for the underwater world. OceanNEnvironment, a NGO charity organization stemmed from that passion. Their mission statement is simple:
"OceanNEnvironment, is a non-profit organization listed with the Registrar of Environmental Organisations in Australia. The mission of OceanNEnvironment promotes and initiates preservation projects as well as endeavors to document the status of coral reefs, bio-diversity and the impact of man-made pollution through research programs and educational expeditions. OceanNEnvironment provides lectures and educational material to schools, private clubs and other non-profit organizations. OceanNEnvironment is also the principal sponsor for the production of Asian Geographic Magazine.
Associates of OceanNEnvironment are volunteers comprising of award-winning underwater filmmakers, photographers, marine biologists, researchers and writers dedicated to produce high quality natural history multi-media works. Our objective is to present information about our natural heritage in an exciting and thought provoking manner. Our aim is to motivate people to learn, to love and to help preserve our natural world"
OceanNEnvironment's associates are some of the industries most talented; David Doubilet, Stan Waterman, Wyland, Emory Kristof, Doug Perrine, and many others have come together as an integral part of this wonderful organization. It is my hope you will take a moment to look into all that OceanNEnvironment is doing to help save our oceans and get involved yourself.
