Fascinating Dancing of Plankton with a Beautiful Song

Fascinating Dancing of Plankton with a Beautiful Song

Plankton not only plays a big role in the biodiversity of the ocean, but also critical in the ocean's carbon cycle, which produces in fact 50% of our oxygen.

This extraordinary video is extracted from «Racing Extinction», a feature documentary made by Oscar winning director Louie Psihoyos who also made «The Cove», beautifully presented with a song called "MANTA RAY" written and performed by Academy Award® nominated composer J. RALPH.

As the bottom few levels of a food chain that supports commercially important fisheries, plankton is crucial to the ocean. If the tiniest organisms like Plankton get sick and die, there won't be anything for slightly bigger fishes to eat. And if those fishes die, there won't be food for even bigger fishes either. That's why the whole ocean neighborhood could be in danger even if one type of microorganism is on the verge of extinction. Plankton of the oceans, the second "lung" of the planet, has the ability to store carbon dioxide over long-time scale, thus its biodiversity affects our climat deeply.
