Creature Feature from the Census of Marine Life

Census of Marine Life and National Geographic

In a decade long project, which ended in October 2010, scientists with the Census of Marine Life traveled the world cataloging the ocean’s life forms. From Australia to China to the Gulf of Mexico and beyond, these researchers documented tens of thousands of diverse creatures, which together form the chorus of life in the sea.

Browse a small sampling of some of the creatures they discovered during the Census by viewing an image gallery of Wild and Wonderful Creatures from the Census of Marine Life and the video Sea Creatures from the Deep.
