Dear friends and supporters,

I hope you and your family are doing well during these difficult times and are finding ways to stay positive and productive. I am encouraged that even while distancing, we can continue our work together to protect the planet.

Thanks to my parents, I was privileged to start diving when I was seven and I’ve never stopped and never will stop. After 75 years of diving, I feel that with all the difficulties that the population of the world is going through today, we have a great opportunity to learn.

I want to share with young people, the decision makers of tomorrow, as much information as possible so they can make much, much better decisions than we have made. And that is why my team and I at Ocean Futures Society will continue with our educational programs in different parts of the world, in different languages, and with online materials, to communicate with as many people as possible, so they can make much better decisions than I was making when I was a kid.

When I look into the eyes of today’s children, my commitment to them is that I will continue to do everything possible to ensure that they and future generations will enjoy healthy oceans and a healthy planet.

Today, on Giving Tuesday, I am grateful for the support I have received that helps us pursue our mission of inspiring and educating people to understand how healthy oceans are vital to the quality of our lives and to life on this planet. Your donation today will help us further this critical message.

“When you protect the ocean you protect yourself.”

Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart,
