The Ocean We Want To Know:

One World One Ocean’s new animated video celebrates the wonders of the ocean with stunning facts about our connection to the planet’s lifeline. The video takes Mitzi and Ferdie from their home in Yosemite to places around the world before returning home to tell their friends about the adventure and all they’ve learned. The accompanying song of ocean celebration is a parody of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know.”
