According to scientists, simple contemplation of aquarium fish positively affects the mental health of a person. And that’s probably a reason of appearance of the underwater photography. Wonderful underwater world of the oceans, rivers, and seas attracts people with cameras. However, underwater photography is actually pretty rare. First, because not everyone owns an underwater camera. And second, even owning such a professional camera doesn’t make you a professional photographer, able to get incredible shots.
Meanwhile, this post features beautiful corals. Noteworthy, coral reefs are under stress around the world, and for many reasons. In particular, coral mining, agricultural and urban runoff, pollution (organic and inorganic), over-fishing, and blast fishing. Besides, the digging of canals and access into islands and bays localized threats to coral ecosystems. Also, there are broader threats. Among them – 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. They live at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean and have never been caught in the lens. Interestingly, 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 – 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 took place 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. However, 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 25 thousand species of animals and plants – about three kinds an hour disappear from our planet. The question is – who will replace them? For example, who will pollinate flowers instead of butterflies and bees, whose numbers has greatly reduced?
