Uncovering the ‘Twilight Zone’


More than 70 percent of our planet is covered by oceans. And yet, we know so little about life underwater. Experts say only five to seven percent of the ocean floor has been explored, and of the entire ocean? Only half a percent! One of the reasons is that it’s hard for humans to go so deep below the ocean surface. But one group of scientists went where no man has ever been. Barnaby Lo went along with them.

Malaysia’s Sea Nomads


In Malaysia, perhaps nobody knows the water better than a group whose name literally means ‘sea gypsies.’ For generations, the Bajau people have lived off the sea, but there is growing concern about whether they can sustain their lifestyle. Berta Tilmantaite travelled to Sabah in Malaysia, where she saw firsthand how the Bajau people live.

Rebuilding an Underwater Community


And our next story is one of man versus industry. Off the southeastern coast of India, commercial fishing vessels are causing havoc for local fisherman, and those who simply love the water. But one group is trying to change that, by rebuilding the underwater coastline that has seen so much damage. Jyothy Karat went to Pondicherry, India to see how they are doing it.
