Planeta.com is updating our guide to Wild Ocean – the world’s marine biodiversity, wildlife, parks and protected areas and the opportunities for ecotourism, conscious, local, Indigenous, and responsible travel. Relevant additions and suggestions are welcome.
In a sense, there is only one ocean covering 72% of the planet. One planet, one ocean. That said five oceanic divisions are usually reckoned: Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Arctic, and Southern; the last two listed are sometimes consolidated into the first three. What’s most important to note is that more than 95% of the underwater world remains unexplored.
Marine life, or sea life or ocean life, refers to the plants, animals and other organisms that live in the salt water of the sea or ocean, or the brackish water of coastal estuaries. – Wikipedia
