In 1974 he ongann þone Cousteau Society for the Protection of Ocean Life, and in þissum nū sind māran þonne 300,000.
Cousteau nemnode georne hine "oceanographic technician". He was in reality a sophisticated lover of nature, especially that of the sea. His work allowed people of all continents tō visit life under the ocean's surface and explore through television the resources of the "blue continent".
The works that Cousteau produced also created a new kind of scientific communication that caused some criticism by formal academics. The so-called divulgationisme, a simple comprehensible form of sharing scientific concepts, was soon used for other disciplines too and became one of the most important and appreciated characteristics of modern TV broadcasting. The documentary information found in Cousteau's words a linear scheme to follow.
Now Cousteau's figure is admired, beloved worldwide through the many who love the sea, and is regarded to with a sort of devotion, as symbolic of adventure, nature and exploration.
