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:
