One day,

a child

who was discovering the sea

asked me:

" The ocean,

what is the ocean? "

And I did not know what to till him.

What is the sea?

What is the ocean?

How do i describe it?


For millions of years

Life flourished on Earth,

and in a very brief time,

began the era of man,

the balances of the nature

that we believed immutable,

We changed.

Everything hastened.

Man risked into space

and depth

in search of other galaxies,

Another milky-way...

In the infinite of a water drop There Is...,



Already pulses with life.

In oceans history,

of the people of the sea,

wild professions,

wild hordes...

In an age of great discoveries,

the sea had no limits,

the resources were infinite.

The navigators

they were navigating the oceans,

Brshing against a world

They couldn't Imagine It's plushness,

It's diversity, It's mysteries...

In those times,

away from Man,

Animals were distributed

in immense territories...

On there Ocean.

Distant coasts were conquered,

new open worlds,

unknown species.

A page of animals history

had just passed.

Only the kingdom of the night

kept on being unsuspected and unseen,


Submarines ...


Almost familiar images

of a terrestrial life,

returning to the sea.

Between the species,

There are surprising bonding...


Might be fearsome in appearance.

The predator

is Often protective...

the smallest,

indispensable for the biggest.

To conquer new territories,

the animals are taking advantage

of every opportunity,

At the smallest incident,


Utilizing a thunderstorm,

they drift with a rickety boat

to the Shallows,

An uninvited passengers

Go out to the ocean,

to the adventure.

They will be lost in the vast Ocean.

Or,with the winds and the currents,

they will take life to other shores.

New big games are carried out

On the new stations.

On the Vast Feedom of the seas

which animals wander through

without obstacles,

from one continent to another.

Without rest,

adventurers of the oceans

they are thrown towards other latitudes.

In the mystery

of the depths,

Nature tested everything,

all the colors,

all the forms.


it offers to It's creatures

strange masks,


For The need,

to survive,

the animals cover

thousands of kilometers

towards the cold and fertile waters.

Roaming the vast waters.




i must till him that too.

Endangered species,

extinguished forever,

scarcely discovered and exterminated.



Several steps to protect

Millions of years of evolution,

annihilated in a few


How many species

have we made disappear?

How much are they in route to extinction?

How much are they threatened?

If our indifference

Is an accomplice of the extinction

of other species,

then the will to protect them,

is also Extinct.

In all the latitudes,

men slide

in the heart of the oceans

with respect...

to discover,

to understand.

the hiden reality...

to explore another side of the mirror...

To the myths and legends

Which occur

in the magical world of Discovery.

The history of the oceans

has just begun...

To Till it, It must include

Its marine species,

even with the smallest,

the most insignificant...

There's still so much to discover...

A Universe in weightlessness...

where gigantic animals

Evolve with grace

And agility

without being afraid of man's presence .

As a conciliation,

harmony is possible.

Sometimes the sea destory the ships,

But nature restores whats broken,

and what was a ruin
