The 'black mermaid' on a mission to get more Africans in the water

Would you like to take a swim in the sea? How about something more adventurous…snorkelling or diving maybe?
Zandile Ndhlovu is a South African born diver. She loves being in the ocean, but she thinks not enough black people are enjoying a dip. She calls herself the ‘Black Mermaid’ and she’s on a mission to get more people on the continent into the water. And she thinks once people experience the magic of the underwater world, they’ll be more passionate about conserving it.
