As a young girl, I spent much of my childhood going to the cayes and exploring the sea in my own little ways. I viewed the undersea world as a magical kingdom, a place where I could swim, live, and be happy forever like Disney’s mermaid, Ariel. But unfortunately, my wishful bubble broke when I took my first dive into the sea. I saw a jellyfish and I wanted to be friends with it so I reached out for it only to be severely stung. From that painful moment I understood that the sea was not my territory, a world not to be feared but respected! I knew that if I wanted to explore this magical undersea realm I had to be careful and respectful of these living creatures underneath. Oceana stands strongly in defense of the world’s oceans and with that comes respect for the sea and its creatures!
