“I wish someone had told me” is a series of posts that feed into our inquisitive nature at CN&CO. Each week we hear from someone in our network about something interesting or surprising that’s recently happened or occurred to them – or lessons they learnt. These blogs are a way to pay it forward and form part of CN&CO’s belief that the world can be a better place – and we all have a responsibility to make it so. This week’s post is by Blake Dyason

I wish someone had told me about WaterBear. 

I don’t often watch TV but when I do it’s a short film, documentary or true story that opens my eyes to new perspectives or shares insight into things I’m passionate about. If you want to watch award winning documentaries and incredible local stories then WaterBear is going to be your new favourite website.

Quoted from the WaterBear website: 

WaterBear is a big fan of documentaries, locally-told stories, NGO campaigns, on-the-ground grassroot outreach, volunteering, eco-travel, sustainable products and much more; and members can find all of this on the WaterBear platform at the touch of a button.

I love that its free and has no adverts.

The Black Mermaid is a brilliant South African short film feature on WaterBear that might inspire you to take up fee diving.
