ABC Islands


Representing a diver’s and snorkeler’s paradise, the ABC islands (Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao) abound with pristine beaches and arrays of underwater vistas. Until 1986 Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao together with St. Maarten, St. Eustatius and Saba made up the Netherlands Antilles. During that year, Aruba became independent, but to this day, remains part of the Dutch Kingdom. The government seat of the Netherlands Antilles is in Curaçao and controls Bonaire and the other three islands.

  Public Service Announcement, Spring 2015
  Oregon State University documentary on global coral reef decline
  I am the story producer for a working documentary, Saving Atlantis, created by Oregon State University about global coral reef decline and efforts to halt and reverse this process. The film will follow prominent researchers from Oregon State and around the world to important and threatened reefs, but we’re also hoping to gather more local subjects and stories about diving in general and love for the ocean and coral reefs. We are looking for stories ranging from research projects to those of people living in costal regions and experiencing these effects first hand. I would love to hear about any ideas you might have.
