Seven-time World Champion Freediver Mandy-Rae Krack was a dual keynote speaker with Alexandra Cousteau earlier this week at an ocean advocacy conference at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, Canada.

Krack and Cousteau both spoke about the ocean’s influence on their lives and the priority of conserving the seas for future generations.
