I am fortunate to be invited to all sorts of interesting events all over the world, and am not always able to attend. This week, the great oceanographer Don Walsh was able to ensure I was at the BLUE Ocean Film Festival and Conservation Summit in spirit and good humour.
However, Don is also known for his brilliant, fun-loving nature. He never misses a chance to put a smile on people’s faces, which is one of the greatest qualities anybody can possess. When Don went onstage to accept the Making Waves award at the BLUE Ocean Film Festival and Conservation Summit on my behalf, he decided to do so pretending to be me, complete with a mask. Thanks Don!
