Become an Ocean Ambassador

History was made on the last night of the 2019 Nature, Environment & Wildlife Filmmakers (NEWF) Congress when CEO of the WILDTRUST, Dr Andrew Venter invited all delegates in attendance from across the globe to become the shareholders in the success of the Our Oceans film and ocean conservation advocacy project.


The Our Oceans project, inspired by the NEWF Congress, profiles the incredible marine heritage across the western Indian Ocean and the commitment of African scientists and emerging marine champions to protect this heritage. The invitation to become shareholders in the success of this project, was catalysed by Dr Paula Kahumbu, Barbara Strydom and Rosemary Mutunkei (NEWF 2019 delegates) who were so inspired by the Our Oceans project, that they felt that it needed to be supported by a network of local and international shareholders, vested in the success of this project. The NEWF Congress delegates responded incredibly well to the invitation, demonstrating their commitment and support.


A core group of shareholders committed a minimum of R 500 towards the costs of ensuring that film is seen at as many film festivals as possible and to enable the participation of the emerging marine champions at these festival to share their passion and commitment. In addition, they committed to enabling as many advocacy and educational screenings of the Our Oceans feature and series, becoming Our Oceans’ Ambassadors.


"We're building a following of vested citizen ambassadors in the effective conservation of OUR oceans and using the film to anchor this. We believe the Our Oceans film is an important tool for inspiring a love and pride for our oceans and highlighting the need for increased ocean protection " said Dr Venter.


Now YOU can join the cohort of vested citizens. Become a shareholder in the success of this wonderful project and an Our Oceans Ambassador.
