Ocean Odyssey: An Adventure into Leviathan’s Realm

It is a tale reminiscent of Homer and a voyage worthy of Odysseus himself. Today on Discovery Enterprise we will undertake a sperm whale’s-eye view of life under the sea and an extraordinary journey that will take us from the Grand Banks and into the abysmal depths of the ocean into a realm where perhaps Jonah and few other intrepid explorers have ever dared venture forth. Ocean Odyssey takes us on an adventure spanning eighty years deep into the world of this planet’s largest living mammal, exploring the vast undersea landscape from which all life once emerged.

We have named our planet the Earth, but our world is truly an Ocean planet. Those of us currently involved in the Atlantica Expeditions have named this vast new and uncharted kingdom – Aquatica.
Aquatica is a world covered in water, and hidden beneath the waves is a dominion far richer and mysterious than any found on land. Here we can find magnificent mountain ranges higher than the Himalayas, chasms deeper than the Grand Canyon and vast plains broader than the Serengeti.
Those of us involved in the Atlantica Expeditions are committed to the long term goal of maintaining the health and vitality of this planet in all its realms – land, air and sea. Each of these realms is integral to the future habitability of our world. Vital in meeting this end is our commitment to the permanent settlement and continual monitoring of the health of our planetary ocean.
The dream of exploring and permanently settling Aquatica is the central vision of our undertaking, with the immediate, global commitment to extended ocean monitoring and the sustainable development of its immense resources for all humankind. We also seek to venture there to teach every culture innovative and powerful systems of thought, carved from a profound visionary environmental philosophy – to preserve and protect this vast ocean realm. It is a philosophy vital to our species’ long term survival on this planet and wherever else humanity will one day settle in this vast Cosmos.
So, after viewing today’s video feature please take a tour of the Atlantica Expedition’s website and learn more about our project.
