I think it’s really hard to nail down , what I find the most fascinating, it’s kinda all of it? It’s that it’s so complex and interconnected, so, if every time you start to focus in on one thing, it becomes more and more complex, if you start looking at kelp growth then you start looking at currents and then you start looking at the nutrients in the currents and then what else is eating those things and what’s living on the kelp and then what’s coming in to eat the things that live on the kelp and i think that it keeps you very humble, you can never think you’re an expert, you’re always learning, there’s always way more that you don’t know than what you think you know,
I think that because the ocean has a big effect on our lives, being able to create a connection for people and to encourage changes and behaviour or a way that creates a better world for everyone is a really, it’s really inspiring to be a part of that.
