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.
This fear-inducing fish, the eternal poster shark for the "Jaws" fuelled anti-shark sentiment, the powerful Great white, also known as the 'White shark' is the ocean's top predator.
The White shark is also the largest of predatory fish, growing to lengths of over 6 meters (20 feet).
This shark is found in every ocean on the planet, and can adapt to sub-tropical and temperate waters alike. These sharks are the most feared of all shark species, and their jagged, exposed, multiple rows of teeth are certainly their most threatening feature.
Great whites have about 300 teeth at any given time, while back rows continually develop new teeth to replace ones lost over time. These sharks predate huge mammals such as seals, and they need strong jaws and sharp teeth to consume such large prey!
Despite the widely held belief White sharks are 'man-eating machines' and 'monsters of the sea', they are actually vulnerable, ancient, vital marine creatures, and deserve the respect of man.
