Photographer Paul Dabill, who specializes in underwater photography, captured the marine life off the coast of Jupiter, Florida, where there was a shipwreck during World War II. The video is posted on the photographer's Facebook account.

"It's always exciting to dive to this wreck because you never know what you're going to see. It is covered with an amazing amount of marine life!" the author of the post explained.

The footage shows dozens of marine species – green turtle, mangrove bass, spotted rays, shovelnose, and others.

The Gulfland tanker sank in 1943 after colliding with another tanker, the Gulfbelle. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, 37 people were killed in the shipwreck. But now a new life is thriving there.

There are several other shipwrecks in the area, but most of them are located at significant depths. "There's a lot of life on all the wrecks, but Gulfland is unique in that it's in shallow water close to shore, so it attracts a lot of baitfish, they're cozy here," Dabill said.

Avery Paxton, a marine biologist at the National Center for Coastal Ocean Science, said ships find their second life underwater because shipwreck sites form habitats for a variety of plants and animals.
