Ocean Geographic explores the dynamics of our ocean – the source and cradle of all life on Earth, occupying nearly 70.98 per cent of our planet’s surface and provides 99 per cent of the Earth’s living space. Since most life on Earth is aquatic, in terms of both diversity and biomass, Ocean Geographic focuses on getting to know who’s who in the sea, allowing readers to appreciate the complexity of the oceanic life forms that make up the vast biospheres, as well as understanding environmental influences and climatic conditions that that make this water planet a hospitable place.

Ocean Geographic also looks at the cultures which have historically been dependent on the sea, and delves into the navigation and migration of early civilizations. Ocean Geographic promotes awareness, beauty and the importance of preserving the health of our ocean environment through the latest scientific knowledge, illustrated by the imagery from the world’s leading underwater artists and photographers. Each edition of Ocean Geographic is a visual adventure of discoveries, exploration and dives into provoking issues that guarantee to inform, inspire and invigorate.
