About The Book & DVD


“We know more about the surface of the moon than we do about the oceans of our own amazing planet.”

Gloria’s new book and DVD  are a guide for anyone who has ever been intrigued, fascinated or entranced by the world’s oceans.

From the tiniest microscopic, one-celled plankton to the vast Blue Whale, incredible photographs and illustrations reveal the amazing diversity of life beneath the waves and the extraordinary adaptations of creatures for survival in the extreme marine environment.

Concepts such as tides, undersea mountains and the relationship between atmosphere and ocean are all carefully described to enable non-scientists to understand how important the world’s oceans are to Planet Earth and to the existence of life on Earth.

From tsunamis and earthquakes, to pollution and rising sea levels – here is a guide that everyone should read – about a watery world that so few humans understand, yet which makes up over 70% of our Planet Earth. The  book and DVD guide us effortlessly to a better understanding of the amazing world beneath the waves.
