Sea Lion Book & iBook
Luke´s book "The Sea Lions of Los Islotes" is a genuine labour of love, ‘Los Islotes is his first book. From his experiences gained through producing permanent images of wildlife and nature his involvement in the promotion of our serious relationship and connection to all living things becomes increasingly vital. Many of us have simply become detached from any direct personal participation in our ecosystem.
Others have little desire or emotional involvement in showing a willingness to appreciate or nurture our natural resources. Producing lasting images and encounters with Sea Lions, Luke cherishes the notion that much needed awareness and continued respect may contribute to preserving our precious natural world.
Luke has been a PADI Course Director for 19 years and has taught scuba for over two decades. He is both a PADI and DAN Instructor Trainer, and also holds instructor qualifications with RAID, IANTD, TDI, and HSE.
