Philippe Cousteau on the State of the Ocean - World Ocean Day 2021

The last 60-70 years have seen the greatest destruction of the world’s ocean and frankly, despite all the talk of sustainability, we don’t want to sustain the way the ocean is today, we need to restore it. And the good news is that we have tools to do just that, restore the ocean, and we know that they work…which is pretty exciting when you think about it.
