Marine biologist Ayana Johnson fell in love with the ocean the moment she laid eyes on a coral reef at age five. She uses her passion to protect marine life and improve the fishing industry.
Welcome to Barrow, Alaska, where a team of marine ecologists gears up to hit the sea ice that is actually teaming with marine life. With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), Craig Aumack of Columbia University and a team have come here to investigate how algae in the sea ice contributes to the underlying marine ecosystems, and which marine organisms depend on the algae for nutrition. Part of the National Science Foundation Series “Science Nation.”
Oyster reefs protect shorelines from erosion, create fish habitats, and clean the water. Scientists in North Carolina are working to restore the oyster reefs along the coast.
What happens when a whale dies? This short piece explores the concept of decay, and the role decay plays in giving life to other organisms.
Shows the metamorphosis of the mosquito from a water ecosystem organism to a land ecosystem organism. One of nine segments in a series, with all nine available on a DVD.
Part of "The Living Oceans" series. Captures the lives of predators and prey in the world's oceans. Explores the hunting habits and defenses in the populations of several species.
It was once believed that organic compounds, light, and water were needed to sustain life, but life has been found in complete darkness underwater. National Geographic Explorer Bob Ballard discovered Lost City, an underwater mountain range, and it is teaming with life. Segment of a video from Wild Chronicles Series.
A lot of the trash that's in the ocean is plastic, and that marine debris is damaging the environment, economy, and the health of animals. The problem will only get worse unless humans change the way they consume and dispose of products. Part of the "Trash Talk" series.
Hydrothermal vents were originally discovered near the Galapagos Rift in 1977. They form from hot springs produced by underwater volcanoes or tectonic activity. Scientists have found an abundance and assortment of life that has adapted to the harsh, dark conditions surrounding these seafloor vents. Part of the "Deep Sea Dive" series.
The story of the coelacanth shows how natural history collections can yield answers and inspire questions for hundreds of years. Ichthyology Curator Melanie L. J. Stiassny presents the ultimate fish tale and offers a primer on specimen prep. Part of the "Shelf Life" series.
Anything people use every day can become marine debris if its is not disposed of properly, and the most common items found during shoreline cleanups are plastics. Sometimes the debris is so tiny that it can barely be seen in the water. Marine debris is more than just trash in the ocean. Part of the "Trash Talk" series.
During prehistoric eras, the geography of North America was different. It was cut into by a large inland sea. In present day Utah, Paleontologists use guide fossils as they search for other fossils of ancient marine life. Ultimately, they hope to discover a fossil of Plesiosaurus. Segment of video from Wild Chronicles Series.
Hidden just beneath the waves of the Caribbean Sea lies a treasure trove of sea creatures in a fantastic underwater world. Circling the intricate coral reefs are creatures great and small. Wild Chronicles gets up close and personal with the denizens that call these waters home. Segment of video from Wild Chronicles Series.
Getting a giant squid from New Zealand to New York is no easy feat. Curator Neil Landman tells the tale of a sizable specimen’s journey to the collections at the American Museum of Natural History, and Curator Mark Siddall explains why this giant cephalopod has a new name. Part of the "Shelf Life" series.
For interns at the Gulf Specimen Marine Lab, hands-on experience means feeding octopi and shark by hand. They also journey to Apalachee Bay to collect sea critters to be used by teachers and researchers across the country. Their internship duties also include the many tasks they perform at the lab, from sea turtle rescue to leading tours. The experience not only increases their skill set, but also exposes them to new potential career paths. Part of the "EcoAdventures in North Florida" series.
Part of "The Living Oceans" series. Captures the mysteries of venomous marine creatures, such as nudibranchs, sea anemones, jellyfish, moray eels, and scorpionfish. Although these creatures can be fearsome predators, their defensive behaviors are also illustrated to highlight the predator/prey relationship that is a fact of life in marine environments.
Scientist with the United States Geological Survey (USGS) conduct health check-ups on a group of manatees. The scientists conduct their research at the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge to help further their population research on marine life in the Three Sisters Spring.
The sea is full of incredible creatures. Some have backbones, while others have no bones. Some are animals that look like plants, and others are animals that have no brains. Students will explore the world under the see and learn about marine life. Based on the children's book by Bob Barner.
Investigates both saltwater and freshwater biomes. Explores how ocean temperature, salinity, and depth affect the enormous diversity of marine life. Covers the intertidal, neritic, and open ocean zones and their characteristics. Also examines estuaries and freshwater biomes such as streams, lakes, and ponds. Defines terms and concepts, and reviews content before a quiz.
Ocean “dead zones” along the Washington and Oregon coasts are threatening critical U.S. fishing areas. These oxygen-depleted regions, that loose virtually all of their marine life in the summer, are expanding, and new ones are appearing in the Pacific Ocean. With support from the National Science Foundation, Oceanographer Jack Bath is also using an impressive new tool, an unmanned underwater glider that provides round the clock monitoring of these zones.
