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).

Or is it just our imagination running wild […]Read More

Maybe it seems odd to start this series why less is more with a Do-it-yourself (DIY) process and even more so to focus on care products. But I have to start somewhere – and yes, I really have to. I really feel it is time to work on transformation on […]Read More
In this minute of visual meditation, we would like to take a minute to relax and focus on nudibranchs in general instead of going into the specifics of the two species filmed in the waters of Bali (Indonesia).
