“New videography techniques have opened up the oceans’ microscopic ecosystem, revealing it to be both mesmerizingly beautiful and astoundingly complex. Marine biologist Tierney Thys teamed with Christian Sardet (CNRS/Tara Oceans), Noé Sardet and Sharif Mirshak to use footage from the Plankton Chronicles project to create a film designed to ignite wonder and curiosity about this hidden world that underpins our own food chain.”
Absolutely brilliant video about the secret life of plankton (see also The Plankton Chronicles on the Ri channel). To me, it’s a nightmarish world, but one that is equally fascinating. The sheer diversity of life astounds me. A teaspoon of sea water can contain over a million different creatures. That’s just mental, but amazing.
Watch out for the aliens. Onwards!
