BBC America has an outstanding show (title above) that has the most amazing cinematography and facts about our planet (oceans and critters). Last night was the new season for the show hosted by David Attenborough. It took 4 years in the making with 1,000 hours below the surface using new technology like probe and suction cameras. A couple of interesting facts were that 97% of the Earth's water in the oceans has enough energy as 10,000 nuclear bombs and that in the Sea of Cortez (Mexico), that the Giant Rays brushing against the plankton produces more oxygen than all the trees on the land. It is well worth the watch not only for the beauty of our oceans but the marine life below.

Its a great watch but trees way more durable than sting rays is my only issue. Not that it is a issue but kind of is if man who likes to kill things is.

True and considering that 2/3 of the worlds forests are being decimated by man, the Giant Rays may be here longer than we are @crossbones27 .

@nanette64 Which is part of the problem. Kill the trees and sting Rays elusive sometimes. Not sure because when on the ocean fishing for fish all we got were sting rays, but anyways kill the trees and ocean temperature effected and they say all that will be left soon is jelly fish.
