10 ways to love the ocean

When Jean-Michel Cousteau spoke before a live Seattle audience in January, he reminded the crowd that his father, famed ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau, would have been 100 this year. Those in attendance at this National Geographic Live! lecture saw a retrospective of Cousteau’s life, including his co-invention of the Aqua Lung, which forever transformed how we see the world’s oceans.

Jean-Michel Cousteau is carrying on his father’s legacy in myriad ways. He has created more than 70 films and founded the Ocean Futures Society in 1999, a marine conservation and education organization. As Jean-Michel showed his own spectacular multimedia – including a video clip in which he dives beneath the sea to pet a great white shark – he peppered his talk with a constant refrain: What can you do to help the oceans?

Perhaps it all begins with awareness. In 10 Ways to Love the Ocean, a new slide show on Bing Travel, we examine how travelers can explore, appreciate and learn about the sea. You can do it by sailing in the company of Monterey Bay Aquarium naturalists, sea kayaking with the Nature Conservancy or taking a small-ship cruise with a marine biologist. You can sleep in the world’s only underwater hotel or visit a designated orca-watching park. You can even spend the night at Jean-Michel Cousteau Fiji Islands Resort, an environmentally friendly hotel that boasts its own on-site marine biologist and a wastewater system that uses coconuts and recycled bottles to protect the lagoon.

What’s your favorite way to love and cherish the ocean? Post a comment below.

  • I love the beauty of the ocean. The surface of the planet is approximately 71% water and contains (5) five oceans, including the Arctic, Atlantic, Indian, Pacific and Southern. Their borders are indicated on the world image (right) in varied shades of blue.
