The Sea Change Project is a nonprofit Trust based in Cape Town, South Africa.

It involves a community of scientists, storytellers, journalists and filmmakers who are dedicated to raising awareness of the beauty and ecological importance of South Africa’s Great African Sea Forest.

We use media advocacy to protect the South African marine environment.

We’ve developed the concept of The Great African Sea Forest and our goal is to have it declared an UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site.

We believe that if we can get others to regard it as one of the natural wonders of the world, they will be inspired to conserve it.

Our mission is to tell stories that connect people to the wild, motivating them to become part of the regeneration of our planet. Our goal is to protect South Africa’s marine environment by making the Great African Seaforest a global icon.


My Octopus Teacher, a feature documentary, by Craig Foster, Pippa Ehrlich and James Reed, follows the story of Craig’s year with a wild octopus. The film is ‘an immersive portrait of human–animal understanding, brimming with danger, drama and devastating emotion’. Watch on Netflix.com/title/81045007.

Sea Change Book

Sea Change Book: Primal Joy and the Art of Underwater Tracking
by Craig Foster and Ross Frylinck

There is a wild sea-forest growing beneath the wind and waves at the southern tip of Africa. Here, millions of creatures live in a borderless realm still ungoverned by man and it is strange and beautiful beyond the telling.

Craig Foster and Ross Frylinck grew up playing in these forests, and this early immersion in the ocean had a subtle and profound impact on the course of their lives. The book, edited by Philippa Ehrlich, documents their rediscovery of the forests of their childhood and showcases Craig’s photographic work over the past decade.

Craig has become a world expert in kelp forest ecology and developed the world’s first form of underwater tracking. Diving without wetsuits in the icy waters, both Ross and Craig discovered how immersion in the cold generated new reserves of energy for their minds and bodies, and how curious forest creatures became more receptive to them.
