Description:

SeaLegacy combines decades of experience in conservation, photography, and communications, with the latest digital and social technologies, to build a healthy future for our oceans. Centered around extraordinary visual storytelling, their approach to impact has three key steps: 1. Expeditions - they lead a team of the world?s best photographers and filmmakers on expedition to capture the beauty and the threats below the surface of our oceans; 2 - Campaigns - With the help of the general public, they spread the word. Using the incredible media they capture out on expedition they fuel global campaigns that trigger lasting and sustainable change; 3 - Solutions - As a community they amplify and fund inspiring projects around the world, creating healthy and abundant oceans, one solution at a time. The core of each SeaLegacy mission is built around an expedition. We traverse the oceans, telling powerful visual stories that move people from apathy to action. With a highly engaged and growing social audience of over six million followers, SeaLegacy is poised to deliver global change. The Swell is a passionate group of influencers, public figures, and celebrities, who are committed to lending their voices to amplify SeaLegacy?s mission. SeaLegacy works in close alliance with scientists and conservation groups who share our mission.
