This is Elea.

Elea was a remarkably smart & curious octopus who lived in a kelp forest in South Africa.

Without the help of her parents she learned how to survive in an environment full of hungry pyjama sharks.

One day, going about her daily business, Elea met Craig.

Craig is a human being who at some point in his life committed to dive into the wild sea on the daily to heal his relationship with nature.

Together, Elea & Craig move through beautiful adventures that heal both of them through the process of becoming increasingly sensitive to each other.

Craig even made a documentary about their relationship called My Octopus Teacher.

This is an ode to Elea.
