Utah's Interest in the Underwater World
SHAUNA LAKE: And its so interesting because were a landlocked state obviously, no ocean or sea anywhere near us. Why do you think theres such a vast interest here?
BRENT ANDERSEN: Well I think that fascination with water is really global. Everyone in all countries no matter where theyre from, no matter their income levels or demographics or education levels, everyones fascinated with water, and in particular some of the animals that live in the water. So I think that has something to do with it. Its just one of those parts of human nature were just drawn to water and want to find out more about you know what lives in the water and its almost like we live on two planets. Ive always mentioned this to some people. We have this planet that we mostly inhabit on the land but theres this other one, this aquatic planet with all these interesting animals and ecosystems and that is really a great place to go visit and learn about.
