Lauren van Nijkerk – I was going to be a famous singer, like ‘Christina Aguilera with a show-in-Vegas’ famous, but alas, the universe had other plans.
Karen Sack – This weekend wasn’t just another day at the office. I was on a boat at the edge of Belize’s Great Blue Hole with Sir Richard Branson, Fabian Cousteau, Aquatica submarines, the Discovery Channel and a team of experts and film-makers on an expedition aimed at raising Ocean awareness and highlighting the need to protect at least 30 per cent of the Ocean by 2030.
Richard Branson – We were journeying to the bottom of the world’s largest sinkhole, an unexplored legend of the deep filled with Mayan mysteries and myths of monsters and wonder. What would we discover?
Richard Branson – Sea monsters, giant hammerheads, UFO sightings and ancient sacrificial sites – the Belize Blue Hole has attracted all sorts of mysteries.
