Education…

The Watermen Project tours schools globally bringing ocean exploration and the ocean into the classroom using the power of Virtual Reality. Through immersive VR experiences and multi-media presentations students are engaged, educated and empowered on how to make a difference and influence change. Together we address single use plastics and how we can all reduce our personal use to ultimately lower our impact on the planet.

Young Explorers

Zaki – 11 y.o. Dives with Great Hammerhead

Zaki joined the Watermen Project’s expedition to The Bahamas in 2014 to meet the iconic great hammerhead shark. At only 11 years of age he entered the water under guidance of our field team. Soon he was able to freedive to the sandy seafloor and was able to observe the nature of the great hammerhead shark up-close. Ever since Zaki has been an ambassador for the sea within his community.

Young Explorers

Young people are the most important resource on planet earth. They are full of enthusiasm, ideals and curiosity. Young people seek adventures and rarely accept that something is impossible, a quality the team of Watermen Project identifies with. We empower the ocean explorers of tomorrow by inviting talented young individuals on our ocean exploration expeditions. Depending on their passions and talents they will be trained in freediving, field research, underwater photography and filming. By mentoring these young explorers the team passes on their experiences and skills to the next generation of ocean storytellers.

Young Explorer: Inka Cresswell

Inka is an aspiring ocean explorer and filmmaker. In 2016 and 2017 she joined two of the Watermen Project’s shark research expeditions to translate the shark research efforts into engaging media. Despite challenging sea conditions Inka produced a series of Expedition VLogs and captured stunning images of marine life and research efforts. Without a doubt, Inka will be an impactful ocean explorer and storyteller.

Virtual Reality

The educational VR content we create brings a true journey of exploration and learning into the classroom. An immersive experience for schools and school-children to help inspire them to become the change-makers needed to resolve the pressing issues facing our oceans. We show children that they are resourceful and that they can, and will make a difference. Through these group VR labs and take-away supportive materials, we can influence young people towards becoming ambassadors for our oceans and engage them through positive reinforcement and hope.
