The Reason You Can’t See to the Bottom . . . .

This short movie is a beautiful and informative introduction to what's below the surface of the cold waters surrounding Vancouver Island. The narration is expert but human, presented in a context of music that suggests the deep.

Biology teacher, scuba diver, nature photographer, and whale researcher Jackie Hildering puts it this way, "If there is one thing I hope to achieve with my photography, it is to shatter the perception that — because you can’t see to the bottom — there must not be much life in these waters.
The opposite it true.
The reason you can’t see to the bottom is because there is SO much life.
"

This movie is just a small fraction of the entertaining and educational content on Jackie's blog site: themarinedetective.com.
