Nayantara Jain, the head of ReefWatch Marine Conservation an organization dedicated to preserving India’s waters, takes us on a journey underwater. She passionately talks about how exploring the oceans will change our outlook on conservation.

Nayantara Jain is ReefWatch's Executive Director. She lived on the islands of Lakshadweep and Andamans as a SCUBA Diving Instructor for a few years, inspired by the beauty of the ocean, but increasingly disturbed by its degradation by factors global and local. Eventually she left the islands to learn more about marine biodiversity and conservation at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego and has returned informed, optimistic and passionate about protecting India's marine spaces.
