Summer Fun in the Sun on the Aegean Sea

Ambassadors of the Environment (AOTE) Cape Sounio, Grecotel Program:

Each summer our AOTE kids and youth programs in Greece kick off their season with great festivities: family, food, fireworks; and how about organic gardening, composting, rock climbing, or a night snorkel!

Protecting Our Marine Heritage

“We need to ensure that majestic areas are protected from short-sighted, economically motivated actions because they can result in long-lasting damage that will prevent our children from enjoying these natural treasures. That is what is at stake.” - Jean-Michel Cousteau

Jean-Michel Cousteau's "Favorite Place on Earth"

July 7, 2009
“Twenty-five years ago, I had the privilege of going with our team to explore the Amazon. I had a lot of questions, and I came out 20 months later with more questions than I had when I went in.” - Jean-Michel Cousteau

Stop the Wasteful Fishery of Shark Finning – Palau

With recent proposed legislation that would decrease protection of Palau’s shark populations, Palau has the monumental opportunity to take a stand against shark fishing and be an example to the world of how healthy marine ecosystems can lead to a thriving tourist industry. In 2004, Palau received international recognition for passing legislation that protected shark populations and outlawed shark finning. This legislation has helped to maintain Palau’s biodiversity and beautiful, healthy reefs that draw tourists in from all across the globe.

Summer Programs in Environmental Education

“From a luxury cruise ship exploring French Polynesia to a quiet coastal campground just up the highway from the Ocean Futures headquarters, to a treetop camp elevated above the Amazon rainforest, Ocean Futures Society is spreading the word of environmental awareness.” - Jean-Michel Cousteau
