Hanli is a South African freediving champion, keynote speaker and Founder of I AM WATER. At present her energy is channelled into ocean conservation through human experience by reconnecting people with nature.
“I truly believe that for us to want to care about something, to protect it, we have to feel connected, to love it. It’s a great and improbable leap to think that one might be compelled to protect something you have never experienced or understood. I Am Water was founded 10 years ago on this principle.”
Connect with nature. Go outdoors or get in the water to remind yourself that there is so much left to fight for. The ocean unites us, but also brings us closer to ourselves– Hanli’s advice for those at the start of their Ocean Activism Jouney
