WORDS OF WIS­DOM

Scuba Diver Australasia + Ocean Planet - - Briefing -

With­out a knowl­edge of what lives on our seabed, we are at risk of never fully understanding and ap­pre­ci­at­ing Ire­land’s in­valu­able

ma­rine en­vi­ron­ment

DAVID O’SUL­LI­VAN

(Chief Sci­en­tist In­fo­mar – Ma­rine In­sti­tute)

Just know­ing wilder­ness ex­ists pro­vides a sense of ex­is­ten­tial value to many peo­ple, that Na­ture still ex­ists some­where in a rel­a­tively

un­touched form, even if they never ac­tu­ally visit the wilder­ness

BEN HALPERN

(Di­rec­tor of the UCSB Na­tional Cen­ter for

Eco­log­i­cal Anal­y­sis and Syn­the­sis)

Take up th­ese courageous brushes, and be­gin paint­ing a bet­ter pic­ture with broader strokes, if not for us im­me­di­ately, then for our chil­dren and fu­ture gen­er­a­tions who await their right­ful turn

on this planet
