Meet Jahawi Bertolli, a National Geographic Explorer and wildlife filmmaker capturing the wonders of the underwater world. Jahawi recalls the time he spent as a child on the Kenyan coast exploring the vibrant coral communities which overtime disappeared, leading him to become an underwater filmmaker. With the help of a National Geographic grant, his film, initially focusing on humpback whale migration off the East African coast, turns into a successful conservation story, shedding light on marine protection and community involvement.
