NATURE-FOOTAGEJune 8th is World Ocean Day !

Recognized by the United Nations, World Oceans Day presents individuals across the globe with an opportunity to reflect on the ocean’s importance, take time to do something good for our planet, and learn how to take action to protect the oceans in our daily lives.

The oceans are home to some of the world’s most delicate and beautiful ecosystems. Some habitats maintain the elements of a thriving marine community, while others show the ravaging effects of invasive species, pollution, overfishing, coral bleaching and other human-induced impacts.

Explore the world’s oceans, from breathtaking beauty to deplorable devastation, in the Ocean and Underwater stock footage collections.
