 ‘Everybody can make a difference wherever you live'

Life Below Water

Life Below Water is dedicated to making the underwater world more visible for everyone, while creating awareness about the vulnerability and significance of this ecosystem.

We want to highlight how the ocean is affected in different areas, including its impact on the magnificent 'Giants of the Sea.' This is especially relevant when it comes to issues like (plastic) pollution and other dangers.

Our efforts involve presenting facts and figures grounded in available research and data. We produce documentaries to further increase awareness about our actions and the delicate balance within the ecosystem known as ‘The Ocean’."

One of our programs is 'Writing for a better world.'
Together with writer Lorena Veldhuijzen we provide lessons at schools. After the lessons every class will write one chapter for the book the school is making. The kids also provide the illustrations within the book.
This way we create even more awareness among children about the environment, here beauty and the ways we could protect here.

Are you interested in the lessons and opportunity to create a book for the school made by the pupils, drop us a line.

We are looking for volunteers in the area of 'gastdocent' and 'organisatietalent.'

When predators fall
It affects us all!

Small impression about the encounters of several reef sharks and other marine life around Fiji reefs.

Hammerhead sharks


A hammerhead shark uses its wide head to trap stingrays by pinning them to the seafloor. They are unaffected by stingray barbs!The eye placement, on each end of its very wide head, allows it to scan more area more quickly than other sharks. The hammerhead also has special sensors across its head that helps it scan for food in the ocean.

Napoleon wrasse


Every now and then when you are lucky you will encounter a Napoleon wrasse.
Due to their late sexual maturity and sex-changing nature, Napoleon wrasse are vulnerable to overfishing.

Napoleon wrasses provide a vital service to coral reefs by eating the crown-of-thorns starfish. These starfish eat coral and damage the reef. Having the Napoleon wrasse around means protection for the coral reefs.


By making a donation you make it possible for us to organise several events, develop and host workshops, create documentaries and more, all about the ocean and the influence of (plastic) pollution on this fragile ecosystem.
