The Schmidt Ocean Institute has started a month-long exploration of the Coral Reef Marine Park in northern Queensland and is broadcasting live to YouTube and Facebook. Check out their daily live-streams for amazing deep-sea creatures and geological structures!
The expedition is maintaining social distancing regulations by connecting the scientists from their individual locations on-shore to the vessel’s crew operating the ROV SUBastian aboard the RV Falcor. Technology is so amazing!
Scientists aboard Falcor, using the ROV SUBastian, have discovered more than 30 new species and recorded never-before-seen marine animals while exploring Niglaoo Canyons, off the coast of Western Australia. Amazing footage of creatures that really defy the imagination!
These clips showcase fragile glass sponge gardens, ancient geological structures, tiny colonies, and a massive (glowing) squid – well worth watching.
