Scientists estimate that up to 95% of the world’s oceans have gone unexplored. That number is absolutely staggering! I can’t help but wonder about what sorts of beautiful creatures might be lurking beneath the surface. What if we could push the limits of exploration even just a bit further?

A team at the World Wildlife Foundation in Australia recently attached a small Go Pro camera to the back of a turtle “to better understand the post-release behavior of tagged green turtles.” Although this was undoubtedly an amazing opportunity to explore underwater life in the Coral Sea, it was also a way to spread awareness of the dangers currently facing the Great Barrier Reef .

The result of the project is absolutely beautiful! Check out the footage from the turtle’s journey in the video above.
