Lucy is a ocean enthusiast, beginning with a love of big fish with sharp teeth as a child, and developing into a career in oceanography as an adult. Living in the vibrant coastal city of Portsmouth in England, Lucy spends much of her time by the sea and volunteers often to reduce plastic polution on the coastline. With an appreciation for the dynamic and ecological nature of the ocean, mixed with knowledge of the vast amount of resources we extract from it, themes of articles will include sustainability, and local and international conservation projects. Lucy's other hobbies include: reading, writing, learning, photography, travelling, sci fi and generally just having fun outdoors.

We bring individuals from all walks of life together with a world-class education system to work for the good of the Red Sea. The Red Sea Project continues to grow rapidly, with participation from members of the general public we call "citizen scientists," to corporate Scuba Divers, Local Communities, educators and students; all contributing their knowledge, passion and experience to support our work to improve scientific awareness and inspire change across all touchpoints in their lives. Our long term goal is to support the implementation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. SDG goals are at the core of the Red Sea Project, and we are dedicated to supporting these targets through both our direct involvement and our partnerships. We have defined our most significant impacts with regard to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We have integrated the SDGs into our agenda. In September 2015, the United Nations launched the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as a framework for shared action for all countries, companies, NGOs and other stakeholders. The Agenda includes 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which set out a global development agenda for 2030, with objectives for social, economic and environmental dimensions. As part of our commitment to the Agenda 2030 and the SDGs, we have identified the most relevant goals for us, and examined our impacts on them.

My name is Tori Ireland, I am 19 years old and I have been bitten by the scuba bug. I was fortunate enough to grow up on the South Coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal in South Africa, which allowed my passion for the ocean to bloom and blossom at such a young age. I did my PADI Open Water course at the age of 12 in Sodwana Bay, South Africa, one of the top 3 diving spots in the World, and from the moment that I took my first breaths underwater I knew that this would be my future. My Open Water instructor was a God in my eyes and I decided that I wanted to be like him one day. The thought of teaching people how to dive and exploring the ocean on a daily basis as a career amazed me and I knew that it was my true calling. As time went by, I found myself counting down the years until I would be finished with school and old enough to begin my career in scuba diving. I was fortunate enough to have a Mother and older sister who shared my passion of scuba diving, so we did consistent yearly trips to Sodwana Bay for a week or two of diving. When graduation from High School came near, my friends frantically spoke of University plans and applying to different institutions, and I was so settled in my career decision that the end of my schooling career was stress free. When the time finally came for me to travel to Coral Divers, Sodwana Bay to complete my Divemaster course, it was quite surreal. I worked as a Divemaster at Coral Divers for 3 months and then went on to complete the Instructor Development Course and Instructor Examination in July 2016. Becoming a PADI Instructor was the truest honour I have ever experienced. I was lucky enough to gain priceless experience working as an instructor at Coral Divers, which allowed me to grow into becoming a certified Master Scuba Diver Trainer. My ultimate dream was to get a job abroad and travel with my career, and thousands of emails later, my dream came true. On the 17th of October 2016, I travelled to South East Asia to further live my dreams and it seems now that I have been bitten by the travel bug too. I have decided to share my travel and dive experiences with as many people around the World as possible.
