"We have very few years to fail or succeed in providing a sustainable livelihood for the future of our species."

On June 25, 1997, when Jacques-Yves Cousteau died, the world lost more than an esteemed biologist and oceanographer. The world lost its greatest guide of the unknown realm that understands the oceans of our planet. Through his documentaries and books, Cousteau contributed more to our understanding of the oceans than any other person.

Cousteau was born on June 11, 1910 in Saint-André-de-Cubzac, France. His parents were Daniel and Elizabeth Cousteau. He spent much of his childhood near the water, swimming and entertaining himself with mechanisms such as water chambers and mechanical toys. After finishing school, Jacques Cousteau entered the French Navy, fighting with distinction in the navy during World War II. During his time with the French Navy, Cousteau designed and experimented with the Aqua-Lung (Aquatic Lung), predecessor of the Scuba Systems used today by divers around the world. In the late 1940s, Jacques Cousteau set out to fulfill a long dream he had longed to find new and untapped land. exciting ways to explore the world's oceans. In 1948 he bought the ship "Calypso", partly a yacht and a walking laboratory, soon to be synonyms along with Cousteau and his submarine adventures. In 1956, with the help of "Calypso" and his crew, Cousteau's position as the most famous marine biologist was already cemented when he received an Academy Award (Academy of Motion Picture Arts, Art and Science Award) for his overwhelming underwater documentary, The Silent World.

Jacques Cousteau left two worlds behind in June 1997: The dry world inhabited by his family, friends and a group. of admirers, and the ocean inhabited by the diverse and mysterious inhabitants. As admirers of the world of Jacques Cousteau, perhaps the best way to honor his great legacy is to continue to respect the rights of ocean life he defended, so that it continues to be there for future generations.
