The 47-minute Ocean Life DVD showcases spectacular up-close underwater footage, with marine life information suitable for young and old. It was created and narrated by Annie Crawley, and features 3 main sections: Meet Annie – an introduction by Annie as she puts on her gear, drives her boat, and gets ready to dive; A-to Z – filled with fun facts and cool video about ocean life from A to Z; and You and the Ocean – where kids can watch as Annie and other kids get in the water. By using an optional language setting, the DVD is translated for Spanish-speaking viewers. The DVD was sponsored by the Save Our Seas Foundation.
The underwater scenes on the DVD are from Annie’s dive expeditions in Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Belize, Galapagos and California, and are not available anywhere else. Kids will want to watch them over and over as they learn about the magical life underwater. Learning has never been so much fun – and so family friendly! “It’s my personal mission to make a difference by educating people about our oceans and themselves.” Annie Crawley
