Oceans cover about 75 percent of the earth’s surface and house between 50 and 80 percent of all life. More than a third of the world’s population relies on marine biodiversity and these massive water bodies to absorb the carbon dioxide generated by human activities. Highlighting the importance of oceans and showcasing the impact of human activities on aquatic life, Sony BBC Earth is premiering Ocean Rescue on World Ocean Day.
Ocean Rescue takes viewers around the globe on a quest to unearth the acts that contaminate the water bodies. Each year, millions of tonnes of plastic debris produced by maritime industries endanger sea life and resources. The show sheds light on aquatic species whose fate has been determined by polluted water. The high quantities of plastic found in water bodies are often ingested by fishes and other sea animals and the remains of it are sometimes found in the seafood we consume.
The 6-episodic series will also present the stories of Arctic Peril, a man ready to risk his life to save the freezing north, and Lewis Pugh, an ocean campaigner who swims along the ice pack to raise awareness, building a sense of inspiration in people.
To know more watch Ocean Rescue from June 8th, 2022, every Wednesday from 9 pm to 10 pm only on Sony BBC Earth.
