Today, against a backdrop of sharply increasing demand, growth in the world population and the growing impact of an unsettled climate, water has become one of the most precious natural resources of our planet.
Feature documentary about legendary oceanographer, marine biologist, environmentalist and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Sylvia Earle , and her campaign to create a global network of protected marine sanctuaries.
This is an introductory documentary on things related to Oceans on the planet.
"Planet Ocean" has stunning visuals which shows how beautiful Oceans are. The content has much variety, as it includes deep ocean marine life, fishing, coral reefs, marine life migration, weather systems and even shipping of containers across oceans. The scenes of coal reefs are particularly beautiful, and it is a shock to hear that a quarter of the Earth's corals died in the last fifty years. Deep water marine life is stunning as well, as most people would not have the chance to watch those majestic animals swimming in pitch dark waters. I was dumbfounded by the abandoned ships off the coast of Mauritania, and surprised by the seaweed farming in Korea. "Planet Ocean" is an eye opener, and and I hope it helps to raise awareness on the urgent need to protect and conserve the oceans.
