"The ocean provides the oxygen we breathe, much of the food the world eats and drives the climate we need to survive - but it is still largely a mystery. We hope the addition of Ocean in Google Earth will inspire more people to explore the seas they depend on every day,” said Tom McCann, spokesman with Ocean Conservancy. "Submarines can go deeper than ever before, cameras can see further than ever before and now we can take people into the ocean as never before."
