Since I was a little girl I am fascinated by the ocean. I love to go to the beach, to breathe in the fresh ocean air, to swim or snorkle in the sea for hours. When I saw a coral reef for the first time, I was overwhelmed by the colours and the diversity of life there. That was in the carribean. I find it abhorring how humans litter the beaches, and how carelessly the treat the wonderful eco-system of the ocean. Every time I am at the beach, I collect trash and throw it away – it does not take up a lot of time and really makes a difference. I am glad to be part of REEFCALENDAR!
