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).
This is the official restart of our website to live up to a part of our life mission: Connect and protect to transform the world (That’s Devocean). The time is now Two and a half years of absence are coming to an end today. The main reason for not being […]Weiterlesen
As a traveller, you better get used to being asked where you are from, as this question comes up early in conversations no matter where you are going in the world. Direct Indonesians? Nevertheless, I was surprised to hear the Indonesian version “dari mana?” constantly when walking down the roads […]Weiterlesen
We’d like to invite everybody to enjoy the beauty of nature and stay wild by keeping an eye on tourist attractions involving animals wherever you go. In chains and cages We just read a disturbing story of two dugongs, mother and child. They were kept on a chain in a […]Weiterlesen
In our first blog entry last year „Journey into the unknown“ we discussed how little is actually known about the impacts of the „first deep-sea mining Solwara 1, which aims to mine the Bismark seabed for high-grade copper and gold, in Papua New Guinea by Nautilus Minerals, a Canadian company“. […]Weiterlesen
My arrival in Indonesia During the flight to Indonesia at the beginning of December 2015, I read in my diving magazine Unterwasser about Bangka Island in the North of Sulawesi: Beautiful and diverse coral reefs just outside the famous Bunaken National Marine Park – less known, but very much worth […]Weiterlesen
The only way to explore the water world of Komodo Nationalpark: boat! But it’s more than just a way to travel. We enjoy the view of the islands in the sky before diving into the endless ocean and the sparkling sun on the water when getting back up after another […]Weiterlesen
A week ago raining season started in Labuan Bajo. Even though the land in all the Eastern parts of Indonesia badly needed the rain, it does have its downsides. Not only are the clouds blocking our precious sun, but it creates quite some runoff that together with rubbish is being […]Weiterlesen
Happy ending and off to a good start. Nevertheless, we don’t know where 2016 is taking us. Therefore we keep our eyes open and follow our hearts: „Whatever tomorrow brings, I’ll be there“. Enjoy the soundtrack (Incubus: Drive) and see you hopefully somewhere at some point in this year (Where […]Weiterlesen
End of the year. And what a fantastic end it is: Mantas and dragons. We love Komodo!Weiterlesen
