From a beautiful underwater world. Underwater photos offer us a glimpse of the wonderful underwater world, oceans, rivers, seas and make us wish we were there when the pictures were taken. Underwater photography is actually pretty rare considering that not everyone owns an underwater camera but the photographers who actually use one are professionals and they get incredible shots. Here is mostly the set of beautiful corals. Coral reefs are under stress around the world. In particular, coral mining, agricultural and urban runoff, pollution (organic and inorganic), over-fishing, blast fishing, disease, and the digging of canals and access into islands and bays are localized threats to coral ecosystems. Broader threats are sea temperature rise, sea level rise and pH changes from ocean acidification, all associated with greenhouse gas emissions. In 1998, 16% of the world’s reefs died as a result of increased water temperature.

Researchers from the America’s Ocean Exploration Team have filmed on video a few amazing new species – sea creatures that live at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean and have never been caught in the lens. They resemble alien beings and defy classification: scientists still only have to describe and name the new species. 100 species of fish, 50 species of deep-water corals, and hundreds of other invertebrates were recorded over 12 dives near Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.

Underwater expedition, during which they made rare footage, organized and funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Research work was conducted in the waters of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. The goal of researchers was to study the ecosystem of the seabed. With the help of a remote-controlled device they were able not only to see but also shoot amazing and unknown creatures living at depths of up to 3 km. On their discoveries American scientists tell gradually: first, on the network appeared photos collection of strange and alien creatures, which they managed to capture in the seabed, and now made public videos.

According to the Committee on the Environment of the United Nations each year on our planet disappears 25 thousand species of animals and plants – about three kinds of an hour. Will they be replaced by new species? For example, who will pollinate flowers instead of butterflies and bees, whose numbers has greatly reduced?
