We are a community of scientists, storytellers, journalists and filmmakers who are dedicated to exploring the ocean.
We’ve fallen in love with the kelp forests off the South West tip of Africa. We’ve formed deep relationships with the underwater creatures and have made biological discoveries that are changing the way we understand these undersea forests. This has led to a groundbreaking sequence in the BBC’s Blue Planet II, an outdoor photography exhibition seen by an estimated 1 million people, and the discovery of 8 new species of shrimp.
We established the Sea-Change Trust, a nonprofit public benefit organisation, which includes Craig Foster, Ross Frylinck and Carina Rubin-Frankal. Our projects are guided and supported by some of the most distinguished professionals in the world.
To name a few : Prof. Charles Griffiths, Craig’s mentor whom he calls ‘master marine tracker; Dr. Chris Henshilwood a global authority on human origins; Dr. Jennifer Mather, renowned cephalopod molluscs behaviour expert; and resolute supporter Elizabeth Parker, Mapula Trust.
The Sea-Change Project involves a feature documentary, a book, a series of exhibitions, field courses and an outreach campaign.
is to deepen our connection with nature through science, storytelling and authentic experience.
We hope this connection will inspire people to shift their behaviour and live in a way that supports a healthy planet. Along the way we are discovering our own deep connection to the wild.
‘The first step isn’t to discover a whale, but to reestablish bonds with the tiniest creatures.’
