VIDEO – Jellyfish Bloom

0

At Terra Nova National Park in Newfoundland, Jill Heinerth had the incredible opportunity to dive into a bloom of jellyfish. These organisms seem to thrive in the most challenging conditions, laughing at the very chaos we humans have brought on with global climate change. Jellyfish adapt and thrive in warming waters, as well as those with low oxygen content. They can literally clone themselves asexually, making millions of copies that form massive blooms like this one found in Newfoundland. They have been on our planet for millions of years and may even outlast humanity as they inherit the earth.
