Reporter: Could you say something specific about your bond with sea?

Martane: Of course… I often go diving with Liu Ye and we witnessed the evolution of underwater ecologies and became aware of what was happening to them.

Seven years ago, we came face-to-face with leopard sharks and were able to observe them several times. A few years later, the leopard shark has completely disappeared. The impoverishment and damage to coral reefs have put pay to an entire ecosystem. It is now a pool of jellyfish.

But on the positive side, the pool of information has been growing and democratizing as well. It is important to understand why an ocean with fewer or no more fish corresponds to a lack of oxygen on earth, thus, no possible life.

Access to information is the key to saving our environment, and our testimonies prove it every day.

Reporter: As a celebrity, what do you do to protect the environment in daily life?

Martane: Haha, do not call me “celebrity”, I am just a normal woman who wants to do something for our homeland.

To begin with, it should be “less plastic, less plastic and less plastic”. Each time we buy household appliances, clothing, toys, flip-flops, gadgets made of plastic, we should consume intelligently and reconsider if we really need them.

Also, we should avoid industrial products as much as possible to protect the environment and your health. Where are they going matters much to me.
