The oceans cover 99 percent of the living space on our planet but less than 10 percent of that space has been explored by humans. There’s something deeply humbling about realising how little we know of the great depths and the life forms that inhabit it. With so much access to so much information, we tend to think we’re all armchair scientists in touch with the world. The vast mysteries of the ocean put paid to that misconception.
Today – World Oceans Day – we celebrate the ocean’s power to inspire and the innovative thinkers who’re protecting them.
