Connecting empathy with tangible ocean impacts


How is the Water is an experience about emotional connection with the ocean. Empathy is a powerful tool for marine conservation, and Cyan Planet is committed to finding ways to turn that into action. We are working together with our network of marine partners to connect ocean-passionate audiences with conservation projects. Additionally, a portion of the sales of the How is the Water will be channeled into projects making differences on a local scale.

How is the

How is the Water is a story of our ocean told intimately through a dolphin’s eyes. It begins with a pod, a family of dolphins who teach you how to hunt and explore in your underwater home. Yet, when your home begins to change as a strange threat begins to invade, you must journey to find its source. How is the Water is an adventure that will take you across a changing ocean, bringing you face-to-face with animals and wonders in danger of disappearing. How far will you go for your family and home?

“The point of the fish story is merely that the most obvious, important realities are often the ones that are hardest to see and talk about… The fact is that in the day to day trenches of adult existence, banal platitudes can have a life or death importance.”
