Real pirates once buried their treasure on Cocos Island. Now a team of scientists, led by Enric Sala and Sylvia Earle is diving into the waters surrounding this beautiful island in Costa Rica to learn more about the fertile seamounts where hammerhead and white tip reef sharks feed during their migratory journeys.
The Ocean Now researchers will document the marine life they find during the month of September. They will be reporting about the turtles, manta rays, and sharks they find.
