Humans have been trying to harness the power of invisibility for a long time now, but it would appear sea wildlife has beaten us to the punch.
A sea creature known as the sea sapphire has the ability to basically turn itself invisible to the naked eye, and scientists are amazed by it.
In the video below, you can watch a sea sapphire shimmer in and out of visibility:

The natural world shows us in so many ways a simple truth: there is strength in numbers.
At WWF, we envision a world in which people and nature thrive – but we’ll only get there if we all play a role. We’ll only get there if we work together.
This is our call to action, to everyone. Mums and dads, students and CEOs. Individuals, business, government. You don’t have to be an environmentalist. You just have to agree that we must be more careful with our one and only home.
WWF has teams of experts working in over 100 countries to protect the natural resources that sustain and inspire us: our forests, rivers, ocean, climate, food and wildlife. But we’ve known from the start that this isn’t a job for one organization.
WWF harnesses the collective power of supporters around the world, communities, companies and governments to create real solutions for people and the planet. Together, we bridge cutting-edge conservation science and traditional knowledge. Together, we help bright ideas from one community take root in another, half a world away. Together, we weather setbacks and persevere. Together, we are champions for coral reefs, rainforests, ice caps and free-flowing rivers. For species who cannot speak up for themselves.
