Divers Discover An Incredible Mystery At The Bottom Of A Great Blue Hole In Belize

Recently this technology was utilized by entrepreneur, Richard Branson, who decided it was time to finally explore ‘The Great Blue Hole’.


Situated off the coast of Belize, the Great Blue Hole is a giant marine sinkhole, measuring almost 1,000 feet wide.


Many have wondered what lies at the bottom of the hole.


Of course, being a place of mystery and wonder, many researchers and scientists have wondered what truly lies at the bottom of the hole’s 400 feet.


But it seems that the mystery was too much for Branson, who decided that it was time to go into the hole and discover that lies within.


Banding together, he and a group of explorers descended into the hole.


To assure that everything was a success, Branson teamed up with the Discovery Channel to document the event. They also supported the work of Ocean Unite.


Branson and his team also went to help support Ocean Unite, to promote the importance of the ocean and its protection.


After everything was ready, Branson and his team descended.


Branson journeyed into the hole with Fabien Cousteau and Erika Bergman, both explorers in their own right.


Once the team began to descend, it wasn’t long before the environment around them began to change.


After ten minutes the gang saw a ‘breathtakingly beautiful’ stalactite.


Sadly there wasn’t any life, as many of the creatures they encountered had most likely fallen into the hole and died from a lack of oxygen in the water.


Branson also discussed the lack of sea life.


‘But when we got to the bottom we could see crabs, conches and other creatures that had fallen into the hole, arrived on the bottom and then ran out of oxygen and died.’


But there was one thing that terrified Branson and his team.


Upon reaching the bottom of the blue hole, the group of explorers discovered that the bottom of the pit was covered in plastic.


Branson was disheartened by the sight.


Of course, Branson is a well-known environmentalist.


Branson has been a strong advocate for the removal of single-use plastic, which often comes to contaminate our oceans and lakes.


And he’s not the only one.


Virgin Voyages, which led the charge, have made sure that no single-use plastic is allowed or used on board. Helping the environment one step at a time.


Branson wrote on his blog:


‘My grandchildren will be in their thirties by 2050. I don’t want them to grow up in a world without corals, without the wonders of the ocean. We need governments to act now to protect at least 30 percent of the ocean by 2030 and reduce CO2 emissions as quickly as possible with a goal of zero net emissions by 2050.’
