Streaming on aquatic life

oceans There are lots of good science videos for children out there, says Mike Petrilli. His 10 best streaming videos on aquatic life start with Disneynature’s Oceans, “a spectacular story about remarkable creatures under the sea.”

The Blue Planet: A Natural History of the Oceans has eight 45-minute episodes. “David Attenborough narrates this definitive exploration of the marine world, from the familiar to the unknown, revealing the sea and its communities at their most fearsome and alluring.”

In Turtle: The Incredible Journey, “a loggerhead turtle swims from a beach in Florida across the Atlantic Ocean, encountering stunning sea creatures as well as serious hazards created by modern man.”

  1. I’ll vouch for “Turtle: the Incredible Journey” –for adults, not kids (kids will enjoy it, too). Spectacular. I did spend a lot of time trying to figure out how they filmed it, and how many different turtles they must have used. But it was informative and well done, as well as visually awesome.

    I’m an amateur herpetologist and I give it A+, and so does the rescued snapping turtle currently in a large Rubbermaid tub who watched it with me.
