24. Mermaids fighting against plastic! - Tamara Adame
Born and raised in a fishing village on the coast of Quintana Roo, Mexico, Tamara grew up in the water and experienced nature since a very young age and has been in the water all my life! Tamara started teaching diving in 2014, became aware that most divers, including guides and instructors, didn't know much about the ocean and its inhabitants and there was a huge lack in connecting people to the environment they visit when diving, so I went on to found my first scuba business MANATUS, a dive school based on using scuba to teach environmental science and conservation. She became interested in plastic pollution a few years back after a tragic visit to the reef where a massive arrival of plastic happened. That was the start of her journey into documentary film, without knowing it, That's where I met Sylvia Johnson and were we first talked about the Mermaids project.
