January 23rd Birthday Love: Hans Hass

Hans Hass

Documentary filmmaker, diver, and marine biologist Hans Hass was born on this day January 23, 1919 in Vienna, Austria. Hass had a passion for sharks, as well as other sea life like coral reefs, stingrays, and octopuses, and shared the ocean’s beauty via photography and film with captivated audiences.

I love you,” I whispered into the ear of the ocean.
“Every since I’ve known you,
I’ve loved you. I must see all your marvels, know all your beauty…
And the ocean listened and snuggled closer to me.

-Hans Hass, Diving to Adventure
