Ocean science resources for students, educators, and the blue economy.

Connecting You with the Underwater World

Blue Planet Publishing is a dedicated platform that offers an extensive collection of free ocean science resources to students, educators, and individuals across the globe. Our primary mission is to foster a collective understanding of our profound connection with the world’s ocean. This world is vast and mysterious and crucial to our planet’s health and survival.

Our team, or as we like to call it, our ‘crew,’ is a diverse group of human writers, educators, and illustrators, each with a deep-seated passion for the ocean and its myriad wonders. We are united by our shared love for the sea and a commitment to making ocean science accessible and engaging for all. Occasionally, we even allow an AI assistant to join us on deck. However, they get seasick quickly, so their contributions are limited and carefully supervised.

At Blue Planet Publishing, we offer an ever-expanding treasure trove of educational materials. These materials include a wide range of books, illustrations, videos, and infographics, each designed to make learning about the ocean a fun and engaging experience. While not all glitter with gold, we strive to ensure they are entertaining and informative, sparking curiosity and fostering a love for learning.

Our primary goal is to help you understand the world’s most important ecosystem – our global ocean. The ocean plays a vital role in regulating our planet’s climate, supporting a vast array of marine life, and providing food and livelihoods for millions of people. By learning about the ocean, we hope to inspire you to join a growing chorus of individuals eager to share their knowledge and passion for the ocean with others.

While our resources are designed primarily with students and educators in mind, we believe they can be of value to a much broader audience. Whether you are involved in ocean-related businesses, an activist working to protect our seas, an ocean enthusiast, or someone seeking to expand your knowledge about the ocean, we hope you will find our resources helpful and inspiring.

At Blue Planet Publishing, we believe education is the key to fostering a deeper appreciation for our world’s ocean and its vital role in our lives. We hope to promote a shared understanding of our connection with the ocean by inspiring curiosity and engaging learners of all ages. We believe that the more we understand the ocean, the more likely we will respect and protect it.

Blue Planet Publishing is more than just a platform for ocean science resources. We are a community of ocean lovers, educators, and learners, united by our shared passion for the sea. We invite you to join us on this exciting voyage of discovery as we explore the ocean’s wonders and work together to protect this precious resource for future generations.
