Xanthe Rivett is a Cairns based underwater photographer and marine conservationist. Having loved the sea and all its creatures since she was a small child Xanthe now finds herself working to provide them with a voice through her words and photography. As the marine environment comes under increasing pressure Xanthe feels that education is the best way to change the future of our oceans. Educating people about all the amazing creatures and habitats of the ocean and inspiring people to stand up for them is her passion.
Much of Xanthe’s photography comes from the Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea, Migaloo’s favourite winter retreat. Xanthe is also working with the Protect Our Coral Sea campaign, asking the Australian government to create a large, highly protected marine reserve in the Coral Sea waters beyond the Great Barrier Reef.
