Oceans are the largest habitat on our planet, and yet few people acknowledge its importance on a daily basis. In a bid to change this, BBC Earth has teamed up with OceanX Media to launch the Our Blue Planet project. The team aims to get “one billion people talking about our oceans” on Twitter by sharing inspiring facts, images, and videos of life below the sea. One of the most recent videos the team has shared is called Open Ocean— an astounding 10-hour-long underwater video teeming with marine life.
BBC Earth invites viewers to “be wowed by the brilliant hues of our blue planet and the incredible animals that live there with this 10 hour loop.” The soothing footage captures the natural behavior of some of the ocean’s most fascinating species, including an enormous Spotted Whale Shark, a pod of playful dolphins, and a mesmerizing swarm of glowing jellyfish.
