Storytelling for Nature Protection
We are a community of scientists, storytellers, journalists and filmmakers who are dedicated to the wild, and specifically the Great African Seaforest.
We advocate for the healing of our planet by connecting people to nature through our science-based immersive storytelling.
Our work includes films, books, exhibitions, education, podcasts and marine biology research.
World-class films are an integral part of our content. We tell immersive, personal stories about people and nature, to a global audience. Our films include the Netflix Original My Octopus Teacher; Older than Trees – a film about the future of sharks and rays, and are developing a feature documentary on a very special pangolin.
Our Sea Change book has been republished as Underwater Wild, and we released a children’s book, A Journey Under the Sea. Craig Foster’s new book Amphibious Soul about “Finding the wild in a tame world,” based on his own ‘rewilding,’ will be available in 2024.
Sea Change Project co-curates multimedia exhibitions that convey the story of our interconnectedness with the natural world. Showcasing the latest research on the origins of Homo sapiens while raising awareness for the Great African Seaforest and kelp forests worldwide. Visit the Origins exhibit in Cape Town.
Having a connection to nature is everyone’s birthright. It is often said we must leave a better planet to our future children but we need to also leave better children to become custodians of this living world and for that we need nature education. We are committed to sharing our love and knowledge of the Great African Seaforest, and nature as a whole, with as many people as we can reach to inspire a sea-change.
All of our work is informed by science. We document marine biology, conduct our own biodiversity research, and collaborate with academic institutions to discover the secrets of the Great African Seaforest. Our most ambitious project 1001 Seaforest Species, undertakes to catalogue 1001 species in the Great Africa Seaforest, each with their own unique story.

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Protect the Great African Seaforest
Kelp forests are highly productive near-shore marine ecosystems. They are biodiversity hotspots, sequester carbon, release oxygen and slow coastal erosion. They are found on 28% of our world's coastlines and are one of the most vulnerable marine ecosystems to the climate emergency.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
Protect & Take Action
Lack of knowledge and awareness, and our human impact on this planet are at the root of all threats to the Great African Seaforest. We are in the ocean every day, learning the secrets of the seaforest and finding stories that inspire people to fall in love with it. We aim to remind people that we are deeply one with nature and that our mother earth is our only life support system and has been for hundreds of thousands of years.
By sharing these stories, people all over the world, including local decision-makers, will recognise the value of this special place. To help us protect the Great African Seaforest please watch, donate and share.
