Wild Ocean

As part of our series focusing on biodiversity and wildlife, Planeta.com spotlights issues and questions of importance relevant to marine wildlife and the wild ocean.

In a sense, there is only one ocean covering 72% of the planet. One planet, one ocean. That said five oceanic divisions are usually reckoned: Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Arctic, and Southern; the last two listed are sometimes consolidated into the first three. What’s most important to note is that more than 95% of the underwater world remains unexplored.
