Did You Know?

Jean-Michel Cousteau:[opening lines] The ocean. From above, a simple blanket of water. But below, a complex world full of color, life, and wonder. This is the coral reef, a timeless thing of beauty for all to enjoy. And yet, mankind's actions have destroyed over one quarter of the world's reefs.
[camera cuts to him on board a sailbot]
Jean-Michel Cousteau:Please join me as we explore the fragile beauty of nature's underwater world. I will be your guide and your host. I'm Jean-Michel Cousteau.
[main theme plays, trumpet fanfare]

Exploring The Reef, 26 November 2003
Author: MyOwnWorld13 from MA USA

I loved this short 7 minute long film on the Finding Nemo DVD. I thought it was very funny, and unique. I was really surprised when I saw dory swim by. I thought it was just going to be exploring the reef. I love how they put the characters in there. I would have liked it even more if the Tank Gang was in it, though. lol! :)
