Whether you live in the middle of the desert or right on the ocean front, the ocean affects your life, daily. From the water we drink, to the air we breathe, to the electronics we use, the oceans are to thank as the majority of goods that we use daily are transported over the waterways across the planet.

It’s nothing short of captivating to read through scientific facts about this magical world. However, it is also somewhat humbling to realize just how little we do know about the oceans.
