Freediving champion Pierre Frolla has been in touch to let us know about his new project – the children’s cartoon “Pirates of the Abyss”.  Two years in the making, the premise of the series is to “entertain children worldwide while informing them the best of what is happening in the heart of the oceans in danger”.

The whole concept and series consists of:

  1. A special animated 52 minute episode recounting the discovery of Ocean Encounter, a fantastic submersible designed by the Guardians of the Abyss, by Pierre and children.  Their aquatic journey around the world to access the secret base of the Guardians of the Abyss and understand that the world’s fate now belongs to their generation.
  2. An animated series of 53 episodes of 13 minutes corresponds to the children of missions, now renamed the Pirates of the Abyss. While they have recovered funky accessories Guardians of the Abyss, they undertake to finalize the initial search of their predecessors: Travel the world to protect endangered species and educate the world to their fate.
  3. A comic on the history of the Guardians of the Abyss. Or how, in the early twentieth century, HSH Prince Albert 1 of Monaco gathered around him the greatest engineers the world has ever known, so they combine their knowledge for the protection of the oceans.
  4. A mobile app, AbyssMap, directly inspired dashboard of the Ocean Encounter ‘designed by the Guardians of the Abyss. It has an interactive Map world which allows users to locate environmental hazards, understand the specific causes and consequences on the ecosystem, as well as discover the recommended solutions.
