×National Geographic Live: "Mysterious Seas" with Diva Amon & David Gruber

Get a glimpse into the ocean’s greatest depths—and the fascinating creatures that live there—with two leading marine biologists and National Geographic Explorers. David Gruber searches the oceans for bioluminescent and biofluorescent marine species and designs delicate and noninvasive tools for studying and interacting with deep-sea life. Diva Amon participates in expeditions around the world to study the unusual animals living in a variety of deep-sea habitats—and how humans impact them. Through stories and conversation, they’ll shine a light on this dark, cold, and mysterious world.
