Actress Cobie Smulders ("How I Met Your Mother," "The Avengers") loves the oceans. She's expressing that love by working with Oceana to save the ocean's hidden gems. Cobie and Oceana dove in the South Water Caye Marine Reserve in Belize, an area bordered by the Mesoamerican reef, home to brilliantly colored organisms like sponges, ascidians, seaweeds and coral. Watch her Q&A with Oceana.
In Summer 2011, Oceana's Ranger embarked upon an expedition in the Mediterranean and Eastern Atlantic to explore seamounts and sea canyons. These unique ocean habitats are generally teeming with marine life, but are relatively unexplored due to their depth and complex terrain.
Oceana crew encountered and documented a variety of marine life, including octopuses, sea slugs, corals, fish, starfish, eels, rays, urchins, and crabs.
