You care about our oceans and the creatures that live in them, right? Cause the creatures just want to be your friend and talk to you!

He will be joined in conversation with Jaimal Yogis, surfer and author of the best-selling coming of age memoir, Saltwater Buddha and The Fear Project and James Nestor, author of Deep—Freediving, Renegade Science, and What the Ocean Tells Us About Ourselves.
