[edit] Information

Big Blue Live Matt Baker, Liz Bonnin and Steve Backshall present a three-part series observing the wide variety of sea creatures that gather in California's Monterey Bay, including many endangered species. Big Blue Live simply wouldn’t be possible without the help of a large network of partners, scientists and contributors, all pulling together to promote ocean life.

[edit] Part 1

Liz discovers why the area attracts so many animals, Steve goes in search of humpback whales and Matt watches a shoal of 25,000 sardines. Plus, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall investigates the conservation of endangered species, and looks at the history of whaling.

[edit] Part 2

A chance for viewers to catch up with all the marine life activity in California's Monterey Bay, as more animals arrive every day. This year, the strongest El Nino phenomena in recorded history is likely to make things in the bay even more interesting than usual. Liz Bonnin investigates an influx of white sharks, while Steve Backshall dives with playful sea lions, and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall meets a local angling legend who is trying to do his bit for sustainable fishing. Plus, Matt Baker comes face-to-face with some of the enormous elephant seals that invade the bay's beaches every year.

[edit] Part 3

In the final visit to Monterey Bay, the team is on the lookout for blue whales - which prove hard to spot despite their vast size. Steve Backshall tries to spot them from the sky, while Liz Bonnin joins scientists tagging the animals. Plus, sooty shearwaters fly to the bay from New Zealand, Matt Baker meets a baby sea otter with a vital role to play in maintaining the ecosystem, and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall reveals how shipping companies try to prevent collisions between ships and whales.
