Sea Week

We are devastated to learn of the passing of Dr Roger Grace, marine biologist, conservationist, photographer, mentor to many and an inspiration to everyone he met. A quiet, determined & lovely man who dedicated his life to protecting our oceans & campaigning for no take marine reserves. Roger was a good friend of Seaweek and did many talks & events for us over the last 10 years as well as donating many of his stunning images for us to use - like this one that featured on our 2014 poster. We will miss you very much Roger, it was always a pleasure to spend time with you, rest in peace. It would be fantastic if we could finally have a national network of marine reserves to be proud of as a tribute to your lifetime's work. ... See MoreSee Less
