Today’s Solutions: October 16, 2021

We know more about the moon’s surface than we do about the ocean’s floors, despite the fact that the oceans produce more than 50% of our oxygen and anywhere between 10-100% of our food, depending on where you live.  Richard Salas, author and underwater photographer, began a book series in 2009 that showcases the beauty of the place we derive so much life sustenance from, but know so little about. Currently Salas is looking for funding to begin printing of Luminous Sea the latest in his the Sea of Light trilogy.

The Sea of Light series is Salas’ labor of love. A successful product photographer, Salas began the Sea of Light Series to educate people about the brilliance of the world’s oceans we are damaging so regularly. Because of the need for rejuvenation and an audible voice to speak for the best interest of the world’s marine life, Salas is donating 50% of the proceeds from Lumminous Sea to the Ocean Foundation, an organization that uses 89% of all donations towards protecting oceans and marine life.
You can find out more about Salas on his website, or check out Indigogo campaign to learn more about how you can help get Luminous Sea published.
