OFS Team Returns to the Gulf

Nathan Dembeck dips his hand in the oil

For the second time since the Deepwater Horizon explosion, Jean-Michel Cousteau and the Ocean Futures Society team are returning to the Gulf of Mexico at a critical time—the horrendous scope of the oil released is now known and the country is mobilized to help. The team will follow closely what is being done, who is doing it, what is working, what isn’t, and what innovations are ahead to rebuild the Gulf.

The Ocean Futures Society team will seek out the stories not yet told, including what is happening to the wildlife of the Gulf and where they are seeking refuge, if they can.

Jean-Michel will meet with officials at all levels of government to help us better understand what is and what isn’t getting done, and why, including deployment of new technologies to immediately begin filtering oil from the waters of the Gulf.

Follow the team as they drive or fly to the site and monitor their calculations as they again carbon offset the entire voyage.

It is only through the generosity of OFS members and supporters that Ocean Futures Society is able to continue our work on site, so please make a donation to fund the team in the field. We need your support so we can lend ours to the people and projects of the Gulf.

Our motto has never been more relevant: Protect the Ocean and You Protect Yourself.
