“The sea, the great unifier, is man’s only hope. Now, as never before, the old phrase has a literal meaning: we are all in the same boat”

Jacque Cousteau

“People must feel that the natural world is important and valuable and beautiful and wonderful and an amazement and a pleasure.”

David Attenborough

“I had fought on behalf of man against the sea, but I realized that it had become more urgent to fight on behalf of the sea against men.”

Alain Bombard, Biologist
