Down, down, down into the deep blue sea. Meet explorers like the real “Captain Nemo” – only one of two humans to have ventured 7 miles into the deep, hear about Cuba’s underwater mysteries and find out why the new green is blue. Only 5% of our oceans have been explored. The opportunity for adventure, research and knowledge seems unlimited, especially now with a new generation of mini-subs – and even a new, “wearable submarine”! Yet our oceans are dramatically over-fished, threatened by pollution – including the massive Gulf of Mexico oil spill — and endangered by climate change’s evil twin – acid oceans. Join us for discovery, adventure and hope at the bottom of the sea.
