As we release the air from our BCD’s, descend towards the ocean floor and dive closer and closer to the reefs, the abundance of life increase steadily, right before our eyes. The reefs are naturally adorned with hundreds of plants, corals, and algae and surrounded by countless different species. On the tops and walls of the coral heads, the sea fans sway rhythmically in the currents, seemingly dancing to imperceptible music. A tiny nudibranch flaunts its body of vividly blue, yellow and orange colors, catching our attention as it slowly crawls on a rock. Suddendly, a veined octopus shoots out underneath the corals and swims away. Then, a huge school of sardines pass by, right in front of us. This great sardine-run phenomenon is an absolutely majestic sight. As a scubadiver slowly glides towards the huge swarm to get a closer look, we watched a fascinating, choreographed movements, the graceful way the fish gave the diver a wide berth. At the moment we were shooting videos and taking photos, we realized that we were witnessing truly incredible biodiversity. The ocean is so alive that it truly deserves to be called underwater Eden.
Marine life reflects the magical beauty of nature. The ocean contains a large variety and abundance of life forms – a vast resource for providing food, medicine, and raw materials. Anyone who imagines this underwater world would want to explore the inner beauty and magic of the oceans! For this reason, it also supports leisure and tourism all over the world.
Unfortunately, the world’s ocean ecosystem has been suffering over the years, mainly, from overfishing, pollution and other human impact. The abuse of marine resources is also depleting fish population and is destroying marine habitats and wildlife.
These are the all reasons why UnderwaterMedia was created. We enjoy taking videos and photos underwater, we also learn more about the oceans, and we want to share these experiences. Not only that we are fascinated of the oceans, UnderwaterMedia also tries to act through small ways and heed to educate people about the importance, respect and love for our seas. We also want to encourage everyone to do their part, big or small, in protecting marine life from selfish, irresponsible human act.
Remember, Mother nature creates the balance in our world and it is our obligation to care for her, because we are all connected to the simplest flower, the oldest tree, to the deepest points in the oceans.
