Guardians of the Oceans – premiere of the National Geographic documentary

On 22 April, to mark Earth Day, National Geographic will premiere the documentary Guardians of the Oceans.

In the premiere production of “Guardians of the Oceans”, legendary oceanographer Sylvia Earle embarks on a journey in the footsteps of those quiet heroes and outstanding scientists who, working below the surface, fight for the survival of our planet. The documentary will premiere on 22 April at 10pm on National Geographic.

On the occasion of Earth Day, National Geographic wants to draw special attention to the extremely important role that the oceans play in the formation of life on our planet. Our future depends on the health of precious underwater ecosystems. That’s why, every day, a multitude of scientists carefully monitor all the processes occurring in the depths in order to be able to react in time.

Freediver with the Ocean Guardians camera Earth Day invites us to reflect on the current state and future of our world. A world 71% of whose surface is covered by oceans and seas. These extraordinary ecosystems shape life all over the planet, supplying the atmosphere with oxygen, regulating temperature and shaping the climate. On a daily basis they are protected by a powerful group of scientists who fight to keep the Earth’s waters free from pollution, noise and destructive human interference.

Only 50% of the ocean depths have been explored so far. That is why exploring new areas is more important than ever. We cannot protect what we do not know. – – explains Sylvia Earl, oceanographer

On the occasion of Earth Day, the behind-the-scenes activities and unusual work of scientists will be presented by National Geographic in the premiere documentary “Guardians of the Oceans” (22 April at 22:00). Eminent oceanographerIn the documentary, Sylvia Earle presents in detail the achievements of six explorers who have dedicated their lives to protecting aquatic environments. Their passionate stories give us hope that we can still make a difference in saving underwater worlds and their inhabitants.

Saving the natural world is the biggest problem facing humanity today. The oceans are crucial to the future of all life on Earth. […] This film is a tribute to science and all that it makes possible, and it was an honour to combine the authority of Sylvia Earle with a new generation of the world’s most distinguished scientists. says the production’s director, Naomi Austin

In this production of ‘Guardians of the Oceans’ we will get an up-close look at the Great Barrier Reef, among other things, which will be told by Dr Emma Camp – a marine biologist dedicated to the study of this remarkable structure. We’ll find out how studying corals can save reefs around the world.

We know less about the ocean depths than we do about the cosmos. [If we don’t act, coral reefs could disappear completely by the end of this century. stresses Dr Emma Camp in her documentary Ocean Guardians

With bioacoustics professor Michel André, we listen to the ocean noise in Antarctica. As part of the Listen to the Deep-Ocean Environment (LIDO) project, he is helping to protect pristine waters and their inhabitants from the threat of noise pollution generated by ships, dredges, military manoeuvres, windmills or seismic surveys.

We will also travel to Peru where Kerstin Forsberg, is using the power of education to save mantas from extinction. And in Western Australia, Dr Brad Norman and I will look at a system of advanced electronic tagging of whale sharks for conservation.

Deep in the Patagonian fjords, Dr Vreni Häussermann will talk about the work she undertakes to document endangered species. Anything to make it before they disappear from the surface forever. She uses submarines to do this, which allow her to go deeper under the water than was ever possible before.

Freediver and whale shark For it turns out that technology is essential if we as humanity want to succeed in protecting the oceans. This is proven, among others, by engineer Ghislain Bardout – an explorer specialising in polar diving and initiator of the Under The Pole expedition. The French scientist will also present his innovative device, which allows you to stay underwater for days at a time, in use.

The documentary “Guardians of the Oceans” presents not only deep insights into the underwater world and our planet, but also deep quality shots. The images were shot in French Polynesia, Chile, Peru, Antarctica, Australia and the Seychelles. Their authors are world-renowned underwater cinematographers Denis LeGrange and Michael Pitts. Surely any lover of the underwater world will be delighted who have created breathtaking 4K resolution images.
