Imagine a world inhabited by hundreds of thousands of unknown species, driven by currents of gigantic power, where we find sunken mountains, canyons several kilometers deep, submerged volcanoes or even rocky chimneys spewing water at 400°C. This world is the high seas.
The high seas, which cover nearly 50% of the globe’s surface, are less well mapped than the surface of the moon! Yet they are essential for human societies. We have long believed that this immense space was invulnerable, a bottomless pit, inexhaustible, without seeing that our activities had an impact on its biodiversity and fragile ecosystems.
With the following video, discover the High Seas and why it is important for all of us!
