Have you ever clicked around on Google Street View to see if you can see yourself papped in your own garden?
Well, now you can dive deep under the ocean from your own living room with this amazing Street View Ocean page.
To celebrate World Oceans Day, the Google Ocean Program has put together this amazing tool, capturing a glimpse of life under the ocean just like Street View creates 3D panoramas of the pavements above.
You can travel from the Maldives to Mexico to Bali with just three clicks and see turtles, humpback whales and great white sharks in amazing HD quality.
“Covering more than 70 percent of the Earth’s surface, the ocean remains one of the most uncharted ecosystems on the planet,” writes Jenifer Austin and Brian Sullivan from the Google Ocean Program.
“Despite the ocean’s vital importance, the ocean is changing at a rapid rate due to climate change, pollution, and overfishing, making it one of the most serious environmental issues we face today.”
The idea behind the project is to draw attention to the preservation of the oceans. We think it could be a really great start. What do you think?
