In celebration of World Oceans Day, we’re proud to bring to life a partnership with wildlife campaigner and presenter Alexandra Johnston, creating a four-part documentary series exploring and uncovering the faces, organisations and techniques being used to support the inhabitants of the Indian Ocean. Not only highlighting the work executed by the conservation teams, but equally the incredible women doing important work to draw global attention to these environmental issues affecting our playgrounds.

The four short films, directed, produced and presented by an all-female team, will dive beneath the Maldivian waves and highlight the people and organisations working on the ground to conserve and protect marine life in the area. 

 

Episode one
sees Alexandra take a deep dive into coral restoration programmes in the area, joining local Marine Biologist, Smrutica Jithendranath, to explore the construction of reef gardens to bring back life to the damaged ecosystem

 

Episode two, Turtle Rehabilitation.
Continuing on from Episode 1, Alex heads to Four Seasons, Kuda Huraa resort to meet the organisation 'Marine Savers' who are rescuing and rehabilitating sea turtles. Here Alex learns about all the threats facing turtles and gets to join in on a release back into the wild.

Conserving the Indian Oceans is a 4-part series in partnership with Alexandra Johnston that acts not only to highlight the work executed by conservation teams helping to protect and restore our playground, but equally shine a light on the women doing important work to draw global attention to these environmental issues.
