In Detail

His film My Octopus Teacher (winner of BAFTA and Academy Awards for Best Documentary Feature) follows the story of his year with a wild octopus, at the same time honouring his pact to dive 365 times a year. Craig founded the Sea Change Project to share his love of nature with others and to connect people to the wild, motivating them to become part of the regeneration of our planet. Having dedicated over a decade to diving every day in the Atlantic Ocean without a wetsuit, he documents the process of how the human body adapts to the cold and builds a primal immune system. Through his regular intensive immersion, he has uncovered many new species and animal behaviours and contributed towards, as well as conducted, foundational marine biology research.


Craig believes that for humans to be healthy, the air, oceans, forests, and all the varied and wonderful beings that we share this planet with need to be healthy too.
