Introducing

SCHMIDT OCEAN INSTITUTE

Worlds of the Deep is a collaborative project between Natural World Facts and Schmidt Ocean Institute. SOI is a non-profit oceanographic research foundation that has been pioneering deep-sea exploration since 2009. Their ROV SuBastian, depth-rated to 4,500 metres and equipped with a 4K camera, has opened a window to the deep.

Introducing SOI

Welcome to the Deep...

In the depths of the ocean, life has found creative ways to thrive in a realm of extreme darkness and pressure, starved of food, where the challenges of this remote region call for adaptations of the weird and wonderful.

 

Across a collection of distinct yet interconnected worlds, the creatures of the deep take part in a drama of beauty, survival, sex, and death, set to the backdrop of a mysterious wonderland that remains largely unexplored.

ENTER A WORLD:   (worlds 2 - 5 coming soon)
