Actress Kate Mara ("House of Cards") has always been passionate about the oceans and wildlife. Now she's putting her passion to work alongside Oceana to get drift gillnets out of the water. These nets entangle and kill thousands of other non-targeted marine animals each year, including whales, dolphins and sea turtles. Watch Kate's powerful call to action.
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.
