Ocean Treasures box unfolds to reveal an underwater world full of sea life and sunken treasure.
The ocean is a vast body of saltwater that interconnects the earth and covers around 71% of its surface.
The ocean depth is estimated to be around 12,200 feet and is home to around 226,000 known species and an even bigger number of species yet to be discovered.
Despite this, well over 80 percent of the ocean remains unmapped. In fact, humankind has been able to map a bigger percentage of the moon and of planet Mars than it has the ocean right here on earth.

The amount of gold in the ocean is worth about 41 times the United States gross domestic product (GDP), and almost 10 times the entire world’s domestic product.
