An abandoned baby manatee is discovered at Blue Spring State Park in Alabama, and it takes team work to rescue and rehabilitate her. Next the SeaWorld's wild life rescue team is called to save two gulls tied together with fishing line.
The ancestors of the horseshoe crab have roamed Earth for over 450 million years. They may look creepy, but they are not dangerous. Their numbers have been declining, and scientists have been trying to help preserve them. Part of "The Remarkable Horseshoe Crab" series.
Meet an education specialist from the Delaware National Estuarine Research Reserve. She says becoming a scientist is all about being curious, and she helps researchers count the horseshoe crabs on the Atlantic coast. Part of "The Remarkable Horseshoe Crab" series.
Australia is home to great biodiversity from the rainforests on land to the Great Barrier Reef in the sea. It is the world's largest coral system and is located off the coast of Queensland, Australia. Part of the "Around the World" series.
In September 2005, members of an ocean exploration captured video footage of the white deep-sea octopod, Grimpoteuthis bathynectes. They nicknamed the octopod “Dumbo” because of its large ear-like fins. These fins and webbed arms help it swim through the water.
