About National Geographic:
National Geographic is the world's premium destination for science, exploration, and adventure. Through their world-class scientists, photographers, journalists, and filmmakers, Nat Geo gets you closer to the stories that matter and past the edge of what's possible.

In April 2013 a team of National Geographic engineers packed up their cameras and headed to Miami. They were on an expedition to investigate deep-ocean creatures that exist hundreds of meters below the surface alongside plankton. Unfortunately, a harsh storm hit on the evening of May 2, several miles off the coast, and the engineers lost their Driftcams out to sea. Three years later, the engineering team was contacted by a Frenchman sailing across the Atlantic. Each year, Eric Visage travels from the Caribbean to his home in France accompanied by his little dog, Scuba. “My dog began to bark, and we saw this ball.” Visage had recovered one of the Driftcams—thousands of miles from where it had originally been deployed.
