Children are our future: Meet Martina and Luly

I found this beautiful video on YouTube from a young girl named Martina and her whale Luly. She addresses Captain Toyama of the Nisshin Maru. Martina, at her very early age sees a future with whales and wants to turn the "research" into a whale watching excursion.

Watch her wonderful video here:

Dive into Google Ocean

Google launches an updated version of Google Earth that includes oceanic 3D underwater terrain as well as historical imagery. With this new addition to the software, you can spot shipwrecks as you wander the ocean floor. As you cruise around, you can also view videos and stills from content partners like National Geographic and videos from the archives of Jacques Cousteau. Another new feature in 5.0 is historical imagery: By activating a time slider, it's possible to see newer and older satellite imagery from around the globe.
