Even the smallest islands on the most remote coastlines of the world cannot escape ocean plastic.
Finn White-Thomson, a London-based filmmaker recently won the 2017 Sylvia Earle Conservation Award by the My Hero Film Festival team for his short film about the Marine Megafauna Foundations, Future Ocean Guardians program in the Bazaruto Archipelago, Mozambique.
The film tackles the issue of plastic waste and the importance of educating younger generations about the value of our oceans.
This film holds a special place for us, as we personally lived on Bazaruto island for more than one year. On the island, we were able to start out one coral restoration project and help our friend Zambezi become a PADI Dive Instructor.
Congratulations to the Marine Megafauna Foundation and Finn for this great award!
