Borneo Ocean Diaries features Sabahan actress and presenter Alexandra Alexander as she takes her PADI Open Water certification and dives into the oceans to explore the equally biodiverse and breathtaking marine environment that surrounds the world’s third largest island of Borneo, Malaysia.
Created by Scubazoo, SZtv productions aims to bring together stunning cinematography and compelling storytelling, in brand new formats tailored for the demands of modern, online audiences. Through pioneering filmmaking and high-quality natural history content, SZtv showcases the best nature offers while also highlighting the many environmental threats it faces.
The Borneo Ocean Diaries series begins with Alex ‘taking the plunge’ as she immerses herself into her PADI Open Water Diver course, before her Borneo marine exploration can truly begin. PADI certified Alex is then guided by Kota Kinabalu’s very own Marine Research Foundation Team, headed by Dr. Nicolas Pilcher. Alex’s underwater adventures take her around Sabah discovering its marine wonders, learning about the creatures, people and scientists that are all connected by the ocean and how we can all help to protect it for the future.
Borneo Ocean Diaries launched the series trailer on 23rd May 2021 in conjunction with World Turtle Day – proceeded by 8 action-packed weekly online episodes.
