Ever since we humans have felt drawn ti the magic of the sea, to its power and unpredictability. It stirs in us  a desire to set out under sail and a wish to retreat at the same time, out of reverence and fear. Today, however, our oceans are threatened as never before. Plastic pollution, climate change and industrial fishing are putting at risk the very existence of untold species.

York Hovest has taken it upon himself to step up and face these challenges. He sought out and accompanied all sorts of “heroes of the sea”: scientists, activists and visionaries who have launched projects to tackle the problem of how to save our oceans. It led him to numerous journeys to every corner of the earth and resulted in this one-of-a-kind photography volume. It reveals both the undisguised beauty of the seas as well as the threats this unique world faces both above and below the surface.

A portion of the proceeds of this book will be donated to the marine conservation organization Sea Shepherd Global. Sea Shepherd fights against illegal fishing, the slaughter of marine mammals and ocean pollution. The book comes without plastic wrapping. Let’s keep the seas safe!
