Deep Sea 3D

 

Overview

This colourful film looks at the importance of biological diversity and the interdependence of species to maintain the balance of an amazing, yet fragile ecosystem.

Every animal here is dependent on another for survival, so the cooperation that exists between these ocean dwellers is the key to a flourishing ecosystem.

The film touches on how over-fishing and bottom trawl nets are unravelling the balances between ecosystem populations. However, footage of the mysterious annual coral spawning in the Gulf of Mexico, which occurs like clockwork on the eighth night after the August full Moon, shows that there is hope and may perhaps inspire a new generation of conservationists and ocean scientists.

This film has a PG rating due to a short scene of a squid swimming in a frenzied manner that younger children may find scary. Make a preview visit or contact us if you are concerned or want to know more.
