Whole new worlds, silent and shimmering. Worlds that are now yours. To discover. To care for. And to love. Author’s Note Jacques Cousteau was a remarkable person, truly one-of-a-kind. He was a protector of our planet and its creatures, an inventor, adventurer and explorer, a poetic writer and spokesperson for the sea. He was also an innovative filmmaker and photographer. Most of all, he loved life with a childlike sense of joy and an insatiable curiosity. His rallying cry wherever he went, whatever he was exploring, was “Il faut aller voir,” which translates roughly as “We must go and see for ourselves,” which I think is a wonderful way to start just about anything.

You can also visit ocean research centers or take snorkeling or diving lessons. CARING FOR OUR PLANET: Cousteau believed that each of us has a responsibility to protect the earth. You can do your part every single day by turning off the water while brushing your teeth, encouraging your family to walk more and ride their bikes, and by turning off the lights when you leave a room. Making an effort to recycle helps, too. FOLLOWING COUSTEAU’ S LEAD: Get a camera and start photographing or filming what interests you.

Something shocking. Plants that used to be alive and healthy were being poisoned. Fish were sick and dying. Jacques saw that people, without realizing it, were slowly killing the sea and its creatures, by dumping garbage and poisonous chemicals into the ocean he loved so much. Jacques knew what he had to do. He had to make movies. Movies to warn people. Movies to save the sea. Jacques also spoke to presidents. To kings and queens. To people all over the earth. Asking them to help save our oceans, our planet.
