Explorer Profile: Richard Fitzpatrick, Catlin Seaview Survey
Along with explorers from both NASA and National Geographic, we’re talking with Cailtin Seaview Survey cinematographer and shark researcher Richard Fitzpatrick who will be joining us from Australia’s Great Barrier Reef… while underwater.
Through the use of an underwater tablet, we’ll explore the Great Barrier Reef through the eyes of the Catlin Seaview Survey expedition. Using specially designed technology, the team has been recording and revealing the world’s oceans and reefs like never before, in high-resolution, 360 degree panoramic vision. This kind of game-changing documentation has allowed the world to see real-time changes in coral reefs to start planning for the future.
