The aim of Aguatilis expedition is to reveal the hidden animal kingdom living miles under the surface. “You can’t actually study gelata in labs or in an aquarium, because their bodies can fall apart from a single human touch”, explains the team of Aquatilis. The team uses innovative equipment and even a robot in order to capture the jellyfish.

Be sure to follow the  amazing journey of Aquatilis on their Facebook page.
