The ocean is one of the most fascinating things on Earth. It's hard to believe we share this planet with an entirely different world out there and know so little about it.
What are the creatures that live in the ocean? How do they interact with each other? What do they eat? Where do they sleep? How do they communicate? The ocean is so vast and unexplored; it makes me feel small and insignificant.
We all know that there are many different types of life in our oceans—from tiny phytoplankton to whales—and how these organisms survive in such a harsh environment is fascinating. For instance, when you look at anglerfish (scary looking!), their bodies seem like they would be more suited for life on land than in the water! And yet, these fish have adapted to their natural environment over time.
Further, discussing how they talk to each other, the whales and dolphins use sound waves to communicate with each other across long distances in the open water. They call this "whale song."
The ocean also has chemical signals—called pheromones—that can travel for miles across open water before reaching another organism's sensory receptors!
I love connecting with the ocean as often as I can. It’s a magical place to be.
