Ocean Literacy Principle 7: The Ocean Is Largely Unexplored

Did you know that we’ve explored less than FIVE percent of our global ocean? Exploration, experimentation, and discovery are required to better understand our ocean’s systems and processes. We need close collaboration among scientists, engineers, artists, and explorers to continue our exploration and understanding of the global ocean. This teaching animation is based on The Ocean Literacy Framework, developed by many scientists and educators from the ocean sciences education community. This project was supported by funding from the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation.
