The Sea of Life

The Sea of Life is a documentary that invites the viewer to reflect upon the importance of marine species to life on Earth. It is a profound vision that seeks to garner respect for our world’s ecosystems.  On one hand, it takes the viewer through protected areas of the planet that are an example of environmental protection while on the other, it shows the root causes that have taken  thousands of species to the brink of extinction.

 

The underwater paradises delved into are: The Great Barrier Reef of Australia, the largest coral reef in the world.  Malaysia’s island of Sipadan, an exemplary leader with regard to conservation of turtles.  Palau in Micronesia, a worldwide reference for marine ecosystem conservation projects.  The Fiji Islands, renowned for being the world’s primary location for soft coral, and lastly, Indonesia, a veritable crucible for biodeversity on Earth.
