All life on Earth originated in the sea and the ocean has maintained favorable conditions ever since. Today, many marine habitats are on the brink of collapse: overfishing, pollution, coral bleaching, acidification, melting polar ice, and rising sea levels – all results of human impact.
But how is it all connected? And is it too late to turn the tide? In the decade of the ocean comes a project that will follow the ocean’s currents, unravel the problems, show solutions, and connect the dots on a global level. Join the multi-award-winning underwater cinematographers and ocean ambassadors of The Jetlagged team as they go on a life-changing adventure, investigating the biggest ocean emergencies and identifying (and living) the solutions that can help to restore the health of the ocean.
With stunning, intimate insights, this documentary will prove that protecting the ocean is not just about the mysterious beauty of the marine world – it is about our very own survival on this planet.
