The ocean is home to millions of species of plants and animals, and others that remain undiscovered. The equilibrium of all life on Earth depends on preserving these delicately balanced ecosystems. Many people see marine life as separate from land life, but the two are far more connected than we might think.
Carla Virgos is an ocean guide and expedition leader who likes to call herself a shark girl and is making efforts to protect the world’s oceans. As an ocean lover, she emphasizes that a healthy ocean with beautiful coasts and vibrant ocean wildlife is becoming a distant dream as the days pass. The flow of waste, including plastic and chemicals, to the seas globally, threatens the existence of several marine species and human beings indirectly. In addition, non-eco-friendly fishing and hunting for sharks are worsening the situation.
Carla believes respecting and caring for the ocean can help save many underwater creatures and restore the ocean’s diminishing glory. She finds it essential to continuously work on meaningful projects and create engaging content that spreads awareness and creates a community where we work together to restore healthy oceans. It might seem impossible or a very challenging task, but every single action can save the future of marine habitats and protect the world’s oceans from impending disaster.
Carla posts incredible underwater videos and wildlife photos on her social media channel @Carlavirgos. She also runs a travel company, Kandu, along with the best group of local experts in the Maldives, and her partner Nazykko, educating people on how to protect the ocean and marine animals, including all the different kinds of sharks, whale sharks, fish, and live corals. On a trip with Kandu, she creates an eco-friendly environment and advises people to avoid ocean-harming products, primarily plastics, and limit the noise pollution in the ocean.
Last but not least, to summarize the work of the acclaimed female entrepreneur, it is important to note that Carla is a keen advocate of education as a means to create awareness and bring change. She loves to be a part of the impactful efforts which involve altering how people see life and the ocean and planning various strategies to protect sharks and the oceans.
