The Marine Diaries presents the second film of the #MarineEcosystemDiaries project.

This month’s film is all about the OPEN OCEAN.

🌏 What defines the open ocean?
🌏 What animals depend on the open ocean to survive?
🌏 What are the biggest threats to the open ocean?
🌏 What is being done to conserve it?

This film captures the largest ecosystem on the planet in all its magnificent glory, exploring the thousands of species that call it home, from microscopic plankton to the largest animal in the world, the blue whale . Whilst humans have explored just 5% of the ocean (‼️) this film delves into the vast impact that human activity is having on the health of the open ocean ecosystem, most notably, the effect of overfishing .
