Tom from Nature’s Water, a water treatment/filtration company out of Ireland contacted me to see if I would share an infographic they created. The infographic has some interesting ocean facts and some unusual sea-life that they thought my readers might have an interest in, so I agreed.
Here’s their synopsis and the beautiful and informative infographic.
Mysteries of The Ocean
In the deepest, darkest parts of the oceans lie ecosystems with more variety and diversity than a tropical rain forest. Beneath the waves is a place of wonder, filled with creatures and enigmas that are as stunning as they are peculiar. While the ocean covers almost 70% of the Earth’s surface, to this day, we know extraordinarily little about it. Even with all the technological advances of recent times, only a little over 3% of the world’s oceans have been explored.
It is estimated that there are over 20 million species of undersea life that have yet to be discovered. In fact, scientists have indicated that we know more about space than we do about the ocean! While many of these oceanic mysteries have been explained by experts and analysts, there are still many unexplained enigmas that enthral us. This infographic created by Nature’s Water will illuminate the mysterious depths of the ocean to those of us who dare to discover the planet’s greatest unexplored frontier.

Thanks for your patience as my posting has been lees than regular lately due to my having returned to school. Who knew there could be so much homework! Still enjoying it despite the workload. Plus my classmates keep me young.
See you on the water,
