The Ocean

Did you know that the ocean covers more than 72 percent of the Earth's surface? That means that most of the living creatures on Earth call the ocean home. More than 1 million species of plants and animals live there, and scientists say they think there may be as many as 9 million species that we haven't discovered yet! Strap on your deep-sea gear and dive in to learn more about life under the sea.
