Perhaps my most perfectly fitting career would be to work for the non-profit organization Oceana. Oceana works on several campaigns that focus exclusively on the health of the world's oceans, including protecting coral reefs, fighting shark finning, keeping fisheries sustainable and safe, putting a halt to the illegal dumping of oil, and a plethora of other issues that are threatening our most vital resource on earth: the ocean.
Jacques pronounced that "mankind has probably done more damage to the earth in the twentieth century than in all of previous human history." Today this statement is truer than ever, and as stated in the Elle reader profile highlighting the Jacques' grandchildren, "What better time could there be for a new generation of Cousteaus, all adventurous, enterprising, and ocean-going, to dive into the void and save the seas!" Oceana - count me in.
