Today we focus on the ocean’s contributions to human health. Did you know that many of the ocean’s treasures have served as models for human physiology?

Sea urchins and starfish showed us how embryos develop from a single fertilised cell. Sharks, skates, lobsters & crabs helped scientists understand how our kidneys work. Squids and lobsters shaped our understanding of how nerves conduct electricity. And horseshoe crabs and skates taught us a lot about human vision.
