Beneath the Waves

Craving a coral reef adventure from the comfort of your computer screen? Beneath the Waves is for you! This award-winning documentary "explor[es] one of Australia's most unique, spectacular and mysterious marine environments: the Kimberley." As highlighted in the resource, over half of all terrestrial life exists beneath the ocean surface. Clicking the "Begin" button allows viewers to explore this first-hand – taking a virtual deep dive into "one of the most intact large tropical marine ecosystems left today." Seven chapters of embedded clips guide you through virtual adventures with a team of researchers as they explore aquatic life and explain the challenges and triumphs of their work. Along the way, readers will encounter everything from crocodiles to crustacean specialists and unlock additional content that provides an in-depth look at some of the species mentioned. Viewers also have the option of clicking the "View Map" button in the top-right corner to search the collection at their own pace. The documentary is a project of the Western Australian Museum and was directed by Sam Bodhi Field and produced by Alice Ross.
