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.
The largest animal to have ever lived on our planet is none other than the Blue Whale.
These Baleen whales grow up to 30 meters in length, and weigh up to 200 tons!! Its tongue alone can weigh 3 tons, and a newborn calf is as heavy as an adult Hippopotamus!
Scientists estimate Blue Whales can live for up to 80 years, although they are still vulnerable to climate change, vessel strikes, and their only known predator, the Orca.
Surviving a near extinction during the 19th century, Blue Whales have since been recovering, with populations estimated at more than 12,000.
