We've created a gallery focusing on the locations and subjects covered in the BBC's Blue Planet Live series, including sharks in Bimini, grey whales in Baja California and green turtles from the Great Barrier Reef, plus the endangered Mediterranean monk seal. This series has been successful in raising awareness of the threats faced by the marine environment, and particularly the problem of plastic pollution in the oceans. We also focus on the Vaquita, the smallest and most endangered cetacean on the planet, which also occurs in Mexico and is now threatened with extinction.
