Video's transcript: " Marine protected areas offer a perfect adventure. They are places to explore and enjoy nature in and around the waters of Canada, Mexico and the United States. A trip to the protected seashore of North Carolina’s Outer Banks is more than a day at the beach. These pristine beaches are part of a marine protected area with rich cultural heritage and abundant wildlife. Mexico's marine protected areas are well-know destinations for snorkelers. Here, snorkelers explore colorful underwater gardens teeming with life. These areas are home to all kinds of plants and animals big and small. An underwater museum at Cancun National Park helps restore and ease pressure on nearby reefs. It attracts visitors to an unusual day at the museum. The raw beauty of the Pacific Northwest is a stunning backdrop for boaters and kayakers. Off the rocky beaches, surfers from around the world brave the cold water to catch a wave. In the Great Lakes, divers can explore beautifully preserved shipwrecks. These relics are monuments to maritime history and are protected as important links to our past. Whatever you like to do, marine protected areas are perfect places to get away and connect with nature."

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The video is part of the Ocean Today educational video collection (sub-collection: Fix the Ocean). It is with open captions and can be viewed in regular (640 x 36) or high resolution (1280 x 720). Video's transcript: "Transcript: Every year, North America's Marine Protected Areas contribute millions of dollars to the economy. Much of the sustainably caught seafood you see in grocery stores and eat in restaurants comes from the Gulf of Mexico. Marine protected areas here protect coastal wetlands that are essential nursery grounds for shrimp and other commercially important fish. In Banco Chinchorro and Sian Ka'an biosphere reserves, fishermen have established cooperatives that market sustainably caught lobster. These cooperatives support local communities dependent upon marine resources. Millions of people also visit these and other marine protected areas nearby to relax on the beach and enjoy a variety of water sports. This generates thousands of jobs in tourism and related businesses. Along Canada's West Coast, kelp forests and herring help sustain First Nations communities. Herring eggs laid on kelp are harvested as a delicacy. For the Haida people, protecting fish habitat is a way of life. Up and down North America's coasts, whale watching brings people and local benefits from all over the world. In these and many other marine protected area across North America, tourists come to see these magnificent creatures. North America's marine protected areas contribute to the economy and help many people sustain a way of life."

Ocean Today. protecting marine life( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The video is part of the Ocean Today educational video collection (sub-collection: marine life). It is with open captions and can be viewed in regular (640 x 36) or high resolution (1280 x 720). Video's transcript: "Transcript Swim up North America's coast like a whale and you will see its vibrant and diverse life. Some of the places along the way are marine protected areas that ensure safe passage and abundant food for the planet's marine animals. These diverse areas also protect an incredible variety of marine life. Off the Florida coast, the most colourful of these marine protected areas are coral reefs that give food and shelter to hundreds of animals. Protection keeps the fragile corals healthy and allows fish and other animals to grow in size and numbers. Along the shoreline of Mexico's Yucatan peninsula, the roots of protected mangroves provide a safe place for young fish and crustaceans to feed and mature before heading out into the open ocean. Above the surface, branches provide a resting place for sea birds migrating along the North American coast. Off the coast of California, the protection of underwater kelp forests preserves many endangered plants and animals. Cool, nutrient-rich waters from the north mix with warm currents from the south to form a unique habitat. Off Canada's Atlantic coast, marine protected areas teem with deep water marine life, including cold-water corals. These areas protect unique underwater canyons and the rare animals that live there. You don't have to swim far to see that marine protected areas are special places that allow marine life to recover and thrive."

Ocean Today. discovering the ocean's secrets( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The video is part of the Ocean Today educational video collection (sub-collection: Research). It is with open captions and can be viewed in regular (640 x 36) or high resolution (1280 x 720). Video's transcript: "Imagine going to work everyday in the ocean, to study the plants and animals that call it home. Scientists from Canada, Mexico, and the United States are benefiting from marine protected areas as living laboratories to make better decisions about our oceans. In the Arctic, researchers brave extreme conditions to identify critical habitat for belugas. These whales need protected areas in the far north to feed, mate, and raise their young. Off the coast of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, counting and measuring fish helps biologists understand how marine protected areas allow fish to grow bigger and more abundant compared with surrounding waters. In some cases, the contrast between them is astonishing! In the Gulf of Mexico, scientists lower remotely operated vehicles into deep ocean vents to study sea corals and mud volcanoes. These places have been protected so researchers can continue to learn about organisms that live without sunlight. The Northwest Hawaiian Islands are home to one of the largest marine protected areas in the world, where table coral creates a unique habitat for thousands of animals. Scientists compare this pristine area with other parts of the ocean where plants and animals are not protected. Thanks to marine protected areas, scientists make new discoveries every day that help reveal the secrets of the ocean."
