It was the dream and vision of Jacques-Yves Cousteau and Sir Peter Blake to help protect and preserve our oceans for our younger generations.
By revealing the beauty and devastating state of our oceans through adventurous and entertaining media in conjunction with the design and development of revolutionary eco-friendly expedition vessels, their visions were at the forefront of today’s green movement.
These efforts should be steadfast in our minds and not go unheeded.
It is time to honour these pioneers and realise their visions by joining the
Eco-Odyssey Family in its necessary and vital quest.
Let the adventure that many of us grew up with, and which shaped our future, continue.
The rewards and benefits will be unmatched.
Eco-Odyssey Foundation (EOF)is a New Zealand-based environmental exploration organisation, dedicated to global education and highlighting awareness about the problematic state of our earth’s life-giving oceans.
The primary focus of EOF is the education and involvement of children and the cinematic documentation of our adventures, discoveries, experiences and observations. Using the very latest technologies, EOF will be an interactive portal for classrooms and our global family throughout the world. In line with our focus it is envisaged that the foundation will evolve into a charitable non-profit entity.
In addition to the educational format, interactive and print media, EOF will produce a series of compelling documentaries, taking viewers on amazing voyages to various “hot spots” in remote regions of the world. Locations key to the eco-system’s health such as the Antarctic, Arctic, the great rivers and coral reefs shall take urgent precedence, with the objective of raising awareness for the protection of life in, on and around the waters of the world.
Ocean 'Gyres' are networks of currents that move around the planet circulating water.
An ocean Gyre is formed from a web of currents influenced by wind and the rotation of earth.
The result is a slow-moving whirlpool system of water covering huge patches of ocean and capable of accumulating an immeasurable amount of rubbish.
Debris gets caught in the cycle and flows towards the centre of the spinning Gyre.
There are 5 major oceanic 'Gyres' in the world collecting decades of garbage from every corner of the globe.
Ocean Gyres may be far out at sea, but they are exposing the harsh realities of ocean pollution; and world pollution.
Please be aware of your consumption of disposable plastics and materials that will never degrade from our planet. The ocean cannot carry the weight of our waste forever.
