Beach Cleanups Can Change Behavior and Increase Appreciaion of the Ocean

"But by participating in the beach clean-up we can help connect the ocean to the existence of every human being. "This is the only way for people to understand that the quality of each and every one of our lives depends on water, depends on the ocean. My father said, 'People protect what they love,' and so we want more people to fall in love with the ocean. And I say, 'Protect the ocean and you protect yourself.'"" - quotes from Jean-Michel Cousteau at an Earth Day beach cleanup.
