My mission is to bring the beauty and excitement of the underwater world to your attention and to your home or office.

These images have been taken while Scuba Diving in the tropical waters of the Caribbean, Red Sea, Andaman Sea and South Pacific.

Regarding our environment:

I am extremely concerned about the vulnerability of our coral reefs. I have witnessed first hand the devastating effects of coral bleaching in waters just a few degrees higher than normal. I have seen coral diseases probably caused by nutrient-rich and polluted run-off from fast developing tourist locations.

Equally disturbing are the effects of environmental imbalance, the probable cause of the proliferation of the crown of thorns starfish which literally suck the life out of the reef. Also of concern to me are the use of cyanide and bombing of the reefs which I have witnessed in poverty-stricken areas of the world. Here a quick though uneducated means of making a living from the sea can damage or destroy large areas of reef. The long term effect is the devastation of the food source of the local community. - Connie Whelan
