This past World Oceans Day, we were invited by Hornby Island Diving to join them and Sea Legacy for a dive just outside of Hornby Island. Hosts Rob and Amanda Zielinski operate a dive lodge on Hornby Island, and for the last ten years have been integral to a BC initiative to regrow kelp.
A two minute boat ride from their dock brings us to Maude Reef, home of a DIY kelp growing area. Amanda and Rob maintain and seed the area, providing a unique marine habitat in an area no longer able to sustain one naturally.
Their work, their passion for conservation, and their message is truly inspiring, and shows that no matter how bad we think things are for our oceans, it's never too late to make a difference.
