Beneath the Waves
Few things are more spectacular than the world that lies beneath the waves. That watery world boasts everything from microscopic life forms to the largest animals on our planet.
Yet our ocean and the marine wildlife within it face more threats than ever, ranging from hunting and over-fishing to pollution, oil spills to global warming. Beneath the Waves - Protecting Marine Wildlife dives deep into the world under the seas, exploring whales and other marine wildlife, as well as how human activities are impacting the ocean and the animals that live there.
