Africa boasts one of the richest and most diverse coastlines in the world. To the west lies the cold Atlantic Ocean, where a great upwelling provides nutrients to fuel life in incredible abundance. To the east, the Indian Ocean offers warmer waters where coral reefs flourish and tropical species thrive. The coast is a magnet for marine life. From enormous colonies of seals and seabirds, to patrolling sharks. While some live here permanently, others are regular visitors to Africa’s oceans.
Despite the abundance and variety of life, the creatures here are feeling widespread pressures from man. Depleted fish stocks force seals to hunt birds they share their rocky islands with; turtles mistake floating plastic for food, and sharks are killed in nets erected to protect swimmers. In the face of increasing pressure from people, life along this coast needs help. Luckily there is a team of experts who have dedicated their lives to safeguarding this marine ecosystem and the wonderful creatures that inhabit it. The crew of the Angra Pequena include scientists, conservationists and passionate volunteers. Their mission is to protect and conserve our planet’s waters. While the team come from many different walks of life, they all share one thing: a deep love for the ocean and all that inhabit it.
Over the course of this series the film crew will document three groundbreaking expeditions aboard the vessel. This unique access will give the viewer a window into the world of ocean exploration. Each journey will focus on an iconic group; whales, coelacanths and sharks. From remote outer reefs in the Indian Ocean to popular South African surf beaches - Our Oceans will be an insightful and exciting visual experience.
