My new book is now available to pre order on amazon. Co authored by my good friend and incredibly talented photographer Chris Mason Parker, Underwater Eden is the culmination of ten years of images of a place we are both very passionate about.
The waters that surround Seychelles are home to over 1,000 species of fish and 300 species of coral. The islands are visited by giant Whale Sharks and Manta Rays, and are home to critically endangered Hawksbill and endangered Green Turtles. Its warm tropical waters and coral reefs teeming with fish mean that Seychelles is a popular diving destination. This lavishly illustrated book showcases the extraordinary marine environment of Seychelles’ islands. The diverse marine habitats, including coral reefs, granite seascapes, mangroves and seagrass beds, are home to vibrant communities of marine fauna and flora. Underwater Eden encapsulates the wonder of Seychelles’ seas and highlights the creatures that call them home. With the effects of climate change becoming increasingly apparent throughout the world’s oceans, the authors’ stunning photographs capture the beauty of Seychelles waters during this uncertain period. Chapters on ecosystems, turtles, fishes, Marine Protected Areas and conservation describe and illustrate the marvels of this underwater world.
