The Protectors

The Protectors ocean film series examines the cutting edge science and radical thinking at work in tackling the crisis facing the world’s seas. This series reflects the passion of those at the front line of marine biology, and tells the story of the challenge now confronting us as we explore the world’s oceans.

Can tourism help save the ocean?

Indonesia’s Coral Triangle is one of the most biodiverse places on the planet. But in recent years destructive fishing practices and illegal poaching have been threatening entire species. Eco-tourism could provide a way of protecting and conserving these waters.

Can technology save the rarest creatures on the planet?

A “Facebook for fish” is being used to try and save the critically-endangered Giant Sea Bass. This is just one of the pioneering experiments being carried out by marine biologist, Douglas McCauley, in his mission to protect ocean life.

Exploring and protecting the Antarctic

The Antarctic is one of the least explored places on the planet. For the first time ever a marine biologist has ventured to unexplored parts of the seabed in a submarine. Her discoveries have shocked the scientific community and could pave the way for the biggest no-fishing zone in the world.

Troubled Water

Worldwide thousands of sea species are under threat. How can we protect them, the ocean itself and the millions of people who depend on it for survival?
