This "Where I Work" segment from the journal Nature features Loyiso Dungo. a conservationist and marine biologist who admits "I grew up deathly afraid of the ocean. But that changed in 2016, when I began mapping South Africa's kelp forests for my biology master's degree."

Dongo, who works for Parley for the Oceans, describes the experience of being in a kelp forest, South Africa's kelp forests, the mapping project, the growing demand for kelp - its use in toothpaste was a surprise, building sustainable kelp farms and his public advocacy work.
Life often surprises us, as it did Dungo.
