Where are we going?
We’re making discoveries about new species, how our energy and product activities impact us, and even about how much we just don’t know.
To gather data about this critical information, we’re going to the Twilight Zone, also known as the Mesopelagic Zone between 200 and 1,000 meters deep.
The Mesopelagic Zone is so named due to the limited amount of sunlight that reaches these depths, and it is here that many animals have developed traits like bioluminescence (are able to make their own light).
Many types of animals that normally live at the surface hunt down here, including the beluga whale. This zone drops down to 1,000 meters (3,281 feet) and contains an array of unique and often bizarre looking creatures including angel sharks, dragonfish, gulper eels, radiolarians and the extremely rare Coelacanth.
