Our oceans are facing a catastrophe and have already suffered irreparable damage – this is the rallying cry for help from one of the world’s leading experts in marine biology, in a bid to help and repair our oceans.
Professor Alex Rogers, who recently served as a scientific consultant on the BBC’s Blue Planet II series, has spent the past 30 years studying life in the deep ocean. In The Deep, he takes us on an epic and utterly unforgettable voyage to an alien world, and brings us right to the edge of what is known about our oceans today.
Introducing us to glittering coral gardens, submarine mountains and a range of bizarre and breath-taking sea creatures, many of which he discovered first-hand, Rogers not only illustrates the ocean’s enormous and untold impact on our lives, but also shows how we are damaging it catastrophically through pollution, overfishing, and the insidious and global effects of climate change.
Alex Rogers is Science Director of the Norwegian foundation REV Ocean, a Visiting Professor at the Department of Zoology, University of Oxford and a Senior Research Fellow of Somerville College, University of Oxford. As one of the leading marine biologists in the world, Alex advises the UN, Greenpeace, the WWF, and the G8 countries on ocean ecology.
Alex Rogers will be in conversation with photographer Matt Porteous, one of the founders of environmental campaign Ocean Culture Life.
