Maybe during travelling even more than back home, our need to drink leaves a trail of plastic bottles behind, therefore ask to refill – not just water, but also other drinks and even food. Bring your own bags and containers, proudly say no to straws and other unnecessary single-use plastics. […]Read More
Blog: Dive, travel, connect & protect
Our English blog „Dive, travel, connect & protect“ is presenting photos, videos, experiences, research, opinions and ideas from Devocean Pictures as well as fellow ocean and nature lovers and like-minded initiatives. Our little stories are meant to take you out into the world as well as bringing the world and its (natural) wonders back to all of us.
Dive and travel
Follow our travels to guide and guard to destinations all around the world. We dive into unknown territory and broaden our horizons. In this blog, we don’t only want to document, but also analyse ecologic, economic, political and social problems and patterns to be able to pick and promote alternatives.
Connect and protect
We present people, projects, products, and possibilities to inspire change: live, love and learn from one another. Life is a constant search, a never-ending journey we like to share. We aim to continuously evolve and educate (ourselves) – in and outside the water. Our actions affect others, affect the world. Change is possible to protect our blue planet.
„Dive, travel, connect and protect“ is fuelled by our passion, but our mission doesn’t come without detours, mishaps and constant challenges and we also like to point those out. After all, life is a journey, a constant learning process. Stories in our second blog Abgetaucht are particularly reflecting on those topics. With lots of love and devotion, we are painting an even more personal picture of the weird and wonderful world we are living in (German only).
Just like Elvis, only with “hair” towards both sides of the head. That’s one of the pictures that comes to my mind looking at an ambon scorpionfish (Pteroidichthys amboinensi). Unlike on Elvis, the information that can be found online on this beautiful species is rather slim though. Shaggy style to […]Read More
Solidarity is more than just sitting at home doing nothing, wearing a mask when leaving the house, watching others and pointing fingers without even bothering looking into the life, health or financial situation of that particular person, community or country. Solidarity is easy that way. Even easy to recognize: Look, […]Read More
Once upon a time, before the corona virus had officially reached the local population of Bali, there was a window of opportunity to explore spots usually overrun by tourists. That’s why in mid March we went on a road trip to capture the highlights of East Bali. It’s all about […]Read More
Our next candidate of the group of ambush predators presented in “They got the look” is the devil scorpionfish a.k.a. false stonefish presenting its sinister style with venom. In general, we don’t think it is very nice to call somebody or something false. This fish is pretty real and has […]Read More
Just follow the red arrows, he said. But there are none, in fact, there haven’t been any in quite a while. The squishing sound of our feet sinking ankle-deep into the mud mixes with the buzzing of countless insects. Lit by a sunbeam falling through the thick forest canopy, a […]Read More
For all ocean addicts, explorers, nature lovers, and everybody else having to stay at home due to the coronnavirus and is perhaps longing for a refreshing dip in the ocean: Watch Sulawesi Splendour I-IV. All these creatures are out there waiting for us. Hopefully, when all this is over, instead of […]Read More
In times of Covid-19 we’d like to focus on the positive side of things, using our time to prepare beautiful material and information from around the world and spread good news and positive vibration. This one is for all visitors that are still in Indonesia: emergency stay permits will be […]Read More
Over the last weeks we posted pictures with scientific explanations on classifications of marine life on Instagram and Facebook. As not everybody is (regularly) on social media, I am happily putting it all together in one post now: Let’s talk scientific! Let’s talk scientific! Tiger cowrie When looking only at the […]Read More
Plastic is on our mind. Every high tide leaves behind a line of plastic on the beach of Amed. Every heavy rain shower washes half burned or openly collected rubbish from the settlements and streets into fields and streams, distributed by the wind, animals and more rain, eventually, most it […]Read More
