Jonathan Copley - Ask an Ocean Explorer - Wantage Literary Festival
What is it like to be a ‘bathynaut’ and descend into the ocean depths in a mini-submarine? How deep do sharks go and what other strange life do they encounter in the dark? Marine biologist, science communicator and BBC Blue Planet consultant Dr Jonathan Copley recounts some of his deep-sea adventures and the weird and wonderful creatures he has encountered along the way. His inspirational talk reminds us how our everyday lives are closely connected to the deep ocean.
