"I am no marine biologist and no PhD to my name although no one doubt my passion for plants as an out-and-out field botanist, but this does not stop me from stepping out and make an impact for the seas.

Read about the letter and the wisdom his mother imparted, in his post on the Flying Fish Friends blog, specially written for International Year of the Reef 2018.
