Synopsis

This unique Tie-in to the major motion picture Oceans - coming this April from Disney & National Geographic - explores the health of our oceans, and what we can do to improve it. More than 75 percent of the globe is covered by the oceans. It is sometimes difficult to understand why it is called Planet Earth rather than Planet Ocean. Since half the world's human population lives within a stone's throw of an ocean coastline, the oceans' health is increasingly important. Rich with resources and potential- as a source of renewable energy, new drugs, drinking water- for years we have treated them as both infinite and undamageable. But they are not. Over-fishing, climate change, pollution, acidification, and more have put the world's oceans and marine life at great risk. Oceans gathers some of the most insightful visionaries, explorers, and ocean lovers- marine biologists, politicians, environmentalists, fishermen, sportsmen, deep divers, and more- in a unique anthology, in which each speaks to a unique aspect of our world's most dimly understood dimension.

Jon Bowermaster is a filmmaker and the author of ten books. A six-time grantee of the National Geographic Expeditions Council, his 2007-2008 Antarctic expedition was the final in his OCEANS 8 project, which over the past decade has taken him and his teams around the world by sea kayak. When not on the sea, Bowermaster lives in Stone Ridge, New York.
