The oceans of the world can be exquisitely beautiful, yet with very little warning they are capable of turning into harsh and dangerous places. Underneath the surface, over many thousands of years, large and small creatures have adapted and evolved mechanisms to enable them to survive in the difficult conditions. Living together they have successfully survived in a finely balanced environment, until man came along.
Today, equipped with every modern diving aid, we still find the ocean environment alien and sometimes hostile. For the creatures living in the oceans, with no knowledge of our motives, it is sometimes necessary for them to defend themselves when they feel threatened. Their reaction can often be swift and decisive, the consequences devastating for the victim. Whether human, or another sea creature, the reaction is instinctive –defend or eat!
Why not colour in the pages, whilst you decide who are the real heroes and villains in the ocean?
