For two years, the award-winning Spanish underwater cameraman, Álex del Olmo, has travelled around the Coral Triangle, filming the marine fauna and the vast array of coral that inhabits the spectacular reefs of this area, the true lung of our planet. With a neat 4K image, the 8 episodes of the series cover places such as the Forgotten Islands, Raja Ampat, Komodo, Bali, Triton Bay, Flores, among others, to show in detail dozens of species of fish and crustaceans, captured with macro lenses. The Coral Triangle is a tropical area located in the Pacific Ocean, where Southeast Asia (China Sea) and Oceania meet. It is the place with the most marine biodiversity of the planet: 76% of all known coral species in the world, six of the seven existing species of marine turtles and more than 2,000 species of coral reef fishes live there. It has earned the nickname of “the Amazon of the sea”. It includes 18,500 islands of which only some are inhabited. This area is in serious extinction risk for the human action and the climate change. We are in time to protect it.
