Breath-taking images shared by David Attenborough have provided a foretaste into a world teeming with alien-like creatures.
The amazing images come ahead of Blue Planet II’s release later this month, for which at least 1,000 hours of underwater filming took place across the globe.
The much-loved TV nature expert is also urging the world to cut down on the use of plastics by ‘tomorrow’ to curb growing dangers to the ocean.
Sir David told how his involvement filming the second Blue Planet series showed him the threat that plastic causes to the underwater surroundings.
His commentaries came as he attended a Q&A about the show ahead of its broadcast on
BBC One later this month, 15 years after the original series.
