Protect the Ocean

"Protect the ocean and you protect yourself"
Jean-Michel Cousteau

Jean-Michel Cousteau describes a colorful dive off the Pacific Northwest where cold, nutrient rich water helps support a rich ecosystem with an abundance of sealife. He describes encounters with giant Pacific octopus, wolf eels, sunflower sea stars, a rat fish, pink scallops. a cockle, a strawberry anemone, a matridium anemone, shiner surf perch, bull kelp, and a hermit crab. Jean-Michel says he loves diving in cold water environments because he loves the amount of colorful sea life that can be seen there.

The mission of Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ocean Futures Society is to explore our global ocean, inspiring and educating people throughout the world to act responsibly for its protection, documenting the critical connection between humanity and nature, and celebrating the ocean's vital importance to the survival of all life on our planet.

Celebrating the Coastal Lifestyle


  1. Thank you for this. Tucked in a box is a coin my Dearly Beloved received from Jacques Cousteau himself. It's a treasure from an evening spent with such a wonderful man who spent his entire life showcasing the beauty of the ocean and a mission to protect it.

  2. Thank you for posting this, I love watching documentaries about sea life. What amazing creatures and the Cousteau's are just an incredible family!

  3. I'm so glad that you both enjoyed this video. Our oceans are so precious!

    @BHL - that is a wonderful story about Jacques...very touching.

    Have a lovely day!

  4. Our oceans are so precious - your post timely. I wonder what Jacaues would think about what is going on in the gulf right now. It saddens me so much to see all that oil spilling out into the water and hurting the wildlife.
    Thanks for posting this.

  5. Timely is maddening what is happening in the Gulf. I just heard about the Pensacola beaches seems every day is worse than the last. Our beaches and our oceans need to be saved. Thank you for posting this!

  6. I am so excited about the exploration off of our Washington-Oregon-California Coasts! Did you see earlier this week that there were sponges and corals discovered down deep off of the Washington Coast? The sea is absolutely an incredible life-giving entity and we just don't do it justice....


Thanks for visiting us, we would love to hear what you think - - Have a beachy day!
