Sir David’s hope for our oceans

Blue Planet II fi­nal, Nine, Sun­day at 7pm

AFTER wow­ing view­ers over the past six weeks, the fi­nal episode of Sir David At­ten­bor­ough’s (pic­tured) land­mark se­ries Blue Planet II is here.

Our Blue Planet ex­am­ines the role of hu­man ac­tiv­ity on the oceans.

Mi­croplas­tics and pol­lu­tion are an in­creas­ing prob­lem for the world's seas, threat­en­ing the lives of marine life and ul­ti­mately af­fect­ing the ecosys­tem.

Mother dol­phins are po­ten­tially ex­pos­ing their new­born calves to pol­lu­tants through their con­tam­i­nated milk, and the noise of ships and drilling rigs are mak­ing it dif­fi­cult for marine an­i­mals who use sounds to com­mu­ni­cate to even be heard. Can hu­mans re­verse their ac­tiv­ity to pro­tect the seas and the wildlife that in­hab­its it?
