Marine biology degree student, Theo Vickers, who also doubles up as an Isle of Wight photographer and fossil hunter, has shared this great short wildlife film that he’s spent the last year working on.
Shot over the summer and autumn of 2020, the film focuses on the Isle of Wight’s marine biodiversity.
“The film showcases the diversity of habitats and organisms that we have around the Island’s coastline and is contrary to popular belief about UK seas being murky and not very interesting.”
Watch the film
Take a couple of minutes out to watch the film and we’re sure you’ll agree that what’s living within touching distance is far more beautiful than most of us imagined.
