Did you know that every second breath we take comes from the ocean? The ocean is the reason we get fresh air to breathe every time we inhale. We could be living by the sea or far far inland, but no matter where we live our lives depend on the ocean. I came across this really informative and beautiful video talking about the vast number of different species that live in the oceans, the oceans we know very little about.
After a decade of research and exploration, the Census of Marine Life has released incredible new knowledge about life in our Earth’s oceans. The study involved 2,700 scientists from 80 countries and more than 9,000 days at sea, ultimately revealing more than 6,000 potentially new species. Among the discoveries: a species of shrimp thought to have gone extinct 50 million years ago. The findings also help identify important changes, like the dwindling population of Atlantic bluefin tuna off the coast of Northern Europe.
