My Octopus Teacher

You’ve got to see My Octopus Teacher! We never imagined someone could spend a year following a wild female octopus through that kelp forest almost every day –free diving!

Film maker, Craig Foster, says, “A lot of people say that an octopus is like an alien, but the strange thing is that as you get closer to them, you realize that we are very similar in a lot of ways.” Craig Foster founded a conservation organization, Sea Change Project,  to “share his love of nature with others.”
