When you go to the beach, have you ever looked down at the water and wondered, “what’s down there?” The ocean is huge. As in MASSIVELY HUGE. According to the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), only 5% of the ocean has been explored and charted by humans.
Today, we will be exploring some of the deepest parts of the ocean to learn more about the coolest, weirdest, and – sometimes – scariest animals that humans have discovered!
The scariest thing about the darkness is not knowing what’s hiding in it. The knowledge you learn in this series will hopefully shine some light in that darkness and help you be a little less scared of the watery parts of our planet.
…or will it?
