Join renowned photographer Matt Porteous and the local Indonesian ocean community in celebrating ocean beauty and conservation at the stunning COMO Uma Canggu. This special 3-day event is scheduled for 26 – 28 October 2023, inviting you to an extraordinary collective action for our beloved ocean!

Globally recognised for his exceptional photography, Matt Porteous brings his visual artistry to the forefront of environmental advocacy in the vibrant Canggu area.

OCL’s community shares tales of marine wonders and the urgency to protect them, bridging science and communication through storytelling to inspire, educate, and preserve.

“Our oceans are the heartbeats of our planet, and it’s our responsibility to protect them. Through the power of photography and storytelling, we can ignite a collective passion for ocean conservation,” says Matt.
