Crucible of Life

The Celebes Sea – cradled by the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia – plunges over 5000 metres into a dark, cold, timeless abyss. Severed from contact with other oceans, life here in the deepest depths of the Celebes Sea comes alive with an explosion of strange, extraordinary creatures.

Thriving far below the depth of sunlight, these bizarre-looking creatures have evolved under conditions unlike anything found on land. For scientists, it is an entirely unexplored hotspot – one of the richest and most diverse on the planet – and it just may hold the secrets of undiscovered life.
