"How innapropriate to call this plant Earth, when it is quite clearly Ocean." - Arthur C. Clarke

Taking it back through memory lane, many of my friends and family would know that ever since I was 10 years old I would refer to myself as "Dr. Lorin Lambert, Marine Biologist". I was snorkelling with my family on the Great Barrier Reef when I realised I wanted to pursue my passion for the ocean "when I grow (grew) up". Shortly after that my family moved to the middle of the Pacific Ocean to the island of Guam. Living just metres from the beach allowed my passion for the ocean and the environment to grow rapidly. Just a week after I turned 12, which is the legal age to become a PADI Jr. Open Water Diver, I became certified amoung other adults and at the top of my class!
Through my underwater adventures in Guam, Palau and Chuuk (some of the most prestine diving in the world), I became more and more involved in protecting my ocean. Through countless beach clean ups, dive cleanups and coral surverys I started to understand the things that humans are doing wrong and how we are destroying the most important ecosystem right in front of us.
I understand it is hard to grasp someone elses passion if you're not interested in the subject of matter. But every single cent counts. Nothing in this world would be able to exist without the stable ecosystem of the ocean.
If my story isn't enough to convince you to donate to Project Aware who are doing everything they can to keep the oceans safe for everyone and everything. I am hoping that you will at least think about things you do throughout your day that could be destroying a fragile environment. Keep single-use plastics out of the ocean by not buying or using them.
To every single person who has made it down this far on my page, I appreciate you, THANK YOU FOR THE SUPPORT!!!
