“The oceans deserve our respect and care, but you have to know something before you can care about it.” [Sylvia Earle, American Marine Biologist]
While I have always loved the ocean, the writing and research I’ve done in the past several years has given me a new, deeper understanding and appreciation. Not only is the ocean home to countless strange and amazing creatures, but it also plays such a vital role in the health of the planet as well as in the lives of billions of people. In honor of the oceans, I highly recommend two BBC documentaries: Blue Planet, and Blue Planet II. You will not be disappointed.
