In this episode we're talking all about SEAWEED! And who better to connect with than the specialist herself, Gabriella D'Cruz - a Marine Conservationist & Founder of The Good Ocean, a seaweed superfoods company looking to change the way we view our oceans.
Join us for a conversation & exploration of Goa's potential as a hub not only for Seaweed cultivation but for homegrown businesses & innovative initiatives. Gabriella takes us on the journey from growing up in Goa to studying abroad, working in a seaweed mansion in Edinburgh and ultimately finding her way back home to set up a business of her own in Goa.
Not to mention, Gabriella's involvement in numerous environmental campaigns such as the current #SAVEMOLLEMGOA which she discusses here and you can follow along on the campaign's Instagram page @savemollemgoa. To learn more about the incredible biodiversity of Goa's Mollem Wildlife Sanctuary that is currently under threat of 3 large development projects, we highly suggest reading this article 'Three projects and massive coal corridor worry Goa' by Ashwini Kamat for Civil Society Online.
