The Living Sea


The Living Sea celebrates the beauty and power of the ocean as it explores our relationship with this complex and fragile environment.  Using beautiful images of unspoiled healthy waters, The Living Sea offers hope for recovery engendered by productive scientific efforts.

Oceanographers studying humpback whales, jellyfish, and deep-sea life show us that the more we understand the ocean and its inhabitants, the more we will know how to protect them.  The film also highlights the Central Pacific islands of Palau, one of the most spectacular underwater habitats in the world to show the beauty and potential of a healthy ocean.

The Living Sea is narrated by Meryl Streep and features songs and music by Sting.
