Hello! My name is Hannah Tilley and I am the owner of the @ilovenudis community and store. I am a scuba diver and underwater photographer based out of Edmonds, WA. I fell in love with Nudibranchs on my very first dive at Cove 2 in Seattle when I spotted a glowing white “thing”. My love for these beautiful slugs has grown into a passion and I have over 30,000 followers across multiple channels including divers from all over the world. We share our love of these quirky yet stunning slugs and our passion for the ocean and diving. I sell fun Nudibranch merch and teach others about them! My mission is to make Nudibranch a household name ❤️
WHY I STARTED @ILOVENUDIS
Before I started diving, I would hear about the human impacts on the ocean but it seemed so distant and out of my realm. However, as soon as I took my first breath underwater those issues became personal. The ocean is my playground, my sanctuary, my home. It is where we can breathe deeply while looking for Nudibranchs and humans are destroying it in front of our eyes.
I fell in love with the ocean as we all have and would do anything to protect it. I believe that love is stronger than fear and I believe
it is a powerful tactic to save our oceans, our Nudis, and ourselves. One way we can use this tactic is to introduce non-divers to the underwater world and expose them to the beautiful creatures they can find for themselves. I believe by building up the underwater community we can make a difference. I love meeting and talking to people at my Popups in Edmonds who have never dared to look under the surface. I want to show them it is accessible and available to them wherever they are. Humans protect what they love so let's protect the Nudis and their home together!
