Holly, with a multi-media presentation, will share a wealth of stories and beautiful images from her adventurous life, including behind the scene images from Jean-Michel Cousteau’s latest IMAX film, ‘Secret Ocean 3D’. She will highlight the complexities of the ocean environment and some of the impacts that are threatening the long-term vitality of our water planet. Using kelp forests and coral reefs as examples of an underwater sustainable city, Holly will highlight many lessons the ocean can teach us on how we can all take part in the global solution of creating a sustainable future. There is untold beauty and inspiration on our ocean planet. We can all make a difference – by protecting and conserving all life on our water planet, for us now, and for generations to come. We protect what we love and through Holly’s presentation you will fall in the love with many of the fascinating marine creatures and feel empowered to be a part of the long-term solution of marine conservation and stewardship. Protecting our ocean now will be our gift to the future.
