We live on a beautiful blue planet — with one big ocean covering about 70 percent of Earth's surface. We depend on the health of the ocean for our very survival, but the ocean remains the largest unexplored place on Earth. The different kinds of life that have been found in the ocean, so far, are stunning in their variety and scale. In this interactive, you can begin to investigate some of the life, habitats, research, and human impacts of different marine worlds.
