VIDEO: Discover Wonder – The Octopus Garden

The National Marine Sanctuary Foundation released a short film, Discover Wonder: The Octopus Garden, a remarkable, mind-expanding adventure that journeys with a team of scientists from the decks of high-tech exploration vessels to the dark and uncharted depths of Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Their mission: to collect crucial data from one of the rarest and deepest fertile octopus brooding colonies on the planet, which was discovered by researchers on the E/V Nautilus

Encounters with otherworldly marine life that inhabit the most extreme and fragile environments imaginable are a reminder of how much of the ocean remains unexplored and a cue for us to ensure the wonders of the deep are protected.
