The Sea Has a Secret... Actually Lots

I wonder who came up with the phrase “On gods green earth”. Only some landlubber would claim that the earth is green. The earth is blue. Sometimes purple, sometimes it may seem a bit greenish and during some seasons you can see some white among the blue.

The earth is referred to as a water planet because most of it is in fact water. But how well do we know out aquatic environment? We know more about the surface of the moon that our deep sea oceans. More species are being discovered everyday. People are finding new things about the flora and fauna that we already know of. For example scientists have discovered that a fish species on the Australian Great Barrier Reef can sniff its way back to the patch of reef where it hatched.

So what does this hold for us? We have easy access to one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. Anythings possible to see on what you may think as a simple dive. Theres so much to see out there and most of the waters are yet untouched.

The chance for discovery awaits you!
