Captain Jacques-Yves Cousteau was a French naval captain who became a marine ecologist, documentary film maker, author, and ocean scientist. He was a pioneer of ocean exploration and discovery. He found worldwide fame in the 1970s as the captain of the ship Calypso that sailed around the world monitoring marine wildlife and making scientific observations and discoveries. But it was the films he made of their adventures on board the Calypso that made him a household name. He developed new underwater camera techniques that brought the marine world to life, and these documentaries became internationally famous. At that time, no one really knew the effects that pollution and coastal development had been having on marine wildlife. The work done by Cousteau and his team brought the fate of the world’s oceans to the attention of the world. Throughout his life he made more than 115 TV shows and wrote more than 50 books.
Cousteau worked with such enthusiasm and love for the marine world that his TV shows rapidly became extremely successful. As a result, his work started a marine conservation movement and groups started to appear in different countries. Soon the world became aware of the destruction people were causing to marine habitats and animals like whales and dolphins. Without his work, we might not have some of the marine species that we do today. He set up a number of conservation groups, but his passion was the study of marine life and the discovery of new lives and new worlds under the ocean.
Today his foundation carries out important scientific work all over the world. The Cousteau Society, which he founded in 1974, has more than 50,000 members. By observing and monitoring the fragile marine ecosystems around the world, the Society has been able to educate different communities in ways of living in a harmonious way with their environment.
It is dedicated to the protection and improvement of marine wildlife habitats around the world for future generations.
Cousteau died in 1997, aged 87. He had dedicated his life to marine research and conservation, and he left an incredibly successful legacy that continues today.
