Wilma discovered her love to the oceans and conservation through recreational diving on shipwrecks and understands that we need to do our utmost to protect our delicate ecosystems.

She lives by the famous Lily Tomlin quote “I always wondered why somebody didn’t do something about that. Then I realised… I am somebody”.
