COUSTEAU celebrate World Ocean’s Day 2020

Happy World Ocean’s Day from COUSTEAU.

Captain Cousteau dedicated his life to the oceans, showing us its amazing beauty as well as its delicate fragility. World Ocean’s Day, which is every year on the 8th June, is an opportunity for us to celebrate our seas and look at why we must protect them, now more than ever.

“I understood that water and life were indiscernibly bound and that i must spend my whole career fighting to protect that life, to safeguard future generations.”

Today, the Ocean is still at the heart of climate change.  Leading scientists worldwide have determined that we need to protect at least 30% of our blue planet by 2030, as of this year it is still under 10%.

The focus for 2020 World Oceans Day is growing the global movement to call on world leaders to protect 30% of our blue planet by 2030.

“If we were logical, the future would be bleak indeed. But we are more than logical. We are human beings, and we have faith, and we have hope.”
