Doudou is an adventurer, scuba diver, freediver, filmmaker, and conservationist with more than one million followers on social media in China. As a child, growing up by the sea, she was very scared of the water. It wasn’t until she came across diving in 2009 that she actually overcame her fears and discovered the beauty of the sea. Since then, she became a certified freediver and has accumulated thousands of dives at locations like the high altitude Himalayan plateau region and the Arctic Qaanaaq Region.
Doudou has also launched an incredible career in underwater photography and filmmaking. She is the first female National Geographic Explorer from China, having worked on projects like Planet or Plastic and Extreme China. Additionally, she founded Mumu Nature in 2017, an institution for teaching outdoor sports and citizen science in nature to the public. "I want to share and narrate the most authentic side of this planet in a diversified and interesting way,” says Doudou, “and rebuild the relationship between humans and nature."
