Hello ocean lovers,
My name is Aoibheann Gillespie-Mules and I have been based on the gorgeous island of Negros Oriental, Philippines for the past few years but recently relocated back to Ireland to join Sea Synergy Marine Awareness & Activity Centre in beautiful Kerry (www.seasynergy.org). I've created this website to help highlight the beauty and the importance of coral reefs using photography. Working as a Scuba Dive Instructor/Marine Conservationist, I've had the privilege of spending the majority of my days under the surface witnessing a little piece of the magic our oceans have to offer.
Sadly, I have also witnessed much of this magic being threatened by many different factors, from ocean temperature changes to plastic pollution, with more threats in-between. Coral Reefs are a precious resource for our planet. Scientists estimate that they host around 25% of all marine life while only covering approximately 0.1% of the sea floor.
Let me show you the beauty of these magnificent animals through my photographs.
