Would you ever dive with piranhas? How about one of the largest freshwater fish in the world? For Mike Manalang, a @vanaqua biologist, it’s all in a day’s work. Tune into our latest IGTV episode to watch this dive and learn how he’s also helping to protect endangered Amazonian species.
Growing up watching the Apollo missions, @jillheinerth had one goal in mind: become an astronaut. But, as a young girl growing up in the 60s and 70s, the steps to becoming a female astronaut were not immediately clear, to say the least. So she looked inwards – and started exploring the depths of inner Earth, instead of outer space. As a renowned cave diver, Jill has been to places on this planet that few people have ever been. And, recognizing that fact, she’s using her platform to raise awareness about our need to protect the ever-important resource of water, hoping that “out of sight” (i.e. submerged in a cave) does not equate to “out of mind.” Listen to our interview with Jill on our latest episode of My Ocean, available wherever you find your podcasts.
