Blue Planet Almanac brother-at-arms, guest and marine biologist David Guggenheim, provided this beautifully magical video. It gives all of us a sense, a feeling, whether or not we’re in the Gulf of Mexico, of what it means to the world. These wonderful moving images just touch the surface of what takes petabytes of words to describe. Please enjoy it!
David is founder and president of 1Planet1Ocean, and wrote this about it,“This video highlights the vast diversity of marine life throughout the Gulf at risk from the BP [also Transocean and Halliburton] Deepwater Horizon disaster. The video provides an underwater tour of the Gulf by sub and scuba, encompassing the U.S., Cuba and Mexico. Produced for the opening of the first State of the Gulf of Mexico Summit in 2006, it was also shown before Congress on 5/19/2010 as part of the testimony of Dr. Sylvia A. Earle.”
