Oceans cover 70% of the Earth’s surface. A vast variety of animals live in the oceans. Think, more than 4,000 species of fish can live on coral reefs! Did you know that ocean algae produce a large part of the oxygen that we breathe? So, it is largely thanks to these hard ocean-workers that we can breathe air here on Earth.

The oceans also form important passageways for us humans.

Ships transport goods and people from one side of the globe to the other.

It was also the ocean that carried Vikings to the shores of America more than 1000 years ago.
