Coral Woman - Paperback
Step into the ocean. Walk into the deep. Feel the silence. See its wonders come alive before your eyes - the fantastic shapes, vibrant colours, the gliding and darting of sea creatures. Welcome to the coral reef with Uma Mani, painter of corals and passionate advocate of coral conservation.
Based on a film of the same name by Priya Thuvassery, Coral Woman is the story of Uma Mani - a story that is as inspiring as the lady herself. It is the story of a 50-year-old homemaker who found the courage to do something as novel and intimidating as diving into the deep seas to see for herself the corals that fascinated her.
This book is a one-of-a-kind look at India's coral reefs and the dangers that they face, which in turn impact marine life and the coastal communities they shelter.
It is a starting point to explore how each one of us can make a difference to our planet.
"Beautifully written with illustrations to match. A powerful reminder that no matter our location or level of experience in the water, we all have an important role to play as a voice for our oceans."
JEFF ORLOWSKI, Director of Chasing Coral, Chasing Ice, The Social Dilemma
