The Who We Are artwork presents a stunning underwater shot by Daniel Nicholson. The ocean appears blue primarily because water absorbs colors in the red part of the light spectrum, and blue light is scattered, making it the most visible to our eyes. Additionally, the sky reflects blue light onto the ocean surface, which enhances its blue appearance. Essentially, the way light interacts with water and is perceived by our eyes is why the ocean looks blue. The Ocean Foundation is the only community foundation for the ocean, on a mission to improve global ocean health, climate resilience, and the blue economy. They create partnerships to connect all peoples in the communities in which they work to receive the informational, technical, and financial resources they need to achieve their ocean stewardship goals.
