Exploring the Ocean

This big, blue planet we call home gets its color from the oceans that cover 70% of its surface. In fact, there are more living things in the world's oceans than there are on land. Most of the wonders on this earth can be found in the oceans. As high as Mount Everest is and as deep as the Grand Canyon, nothing on land can compare with the geological wonders that have been discovered beneath the seas. Learn about the incredible diversity and range of life in the oceans and see some of the world record places hidden beneath the waves.
