In France, the Paul Ricard Oceanography Institute was among the precursors in the battle for the environment. In 1966, Paul Ricard founded this institute and assigned it the mission of extending knowledge of the sea and protecting it. Today, under the presidency of Patricia Ricard, the founder’s grand daughter, the Institute is still in the forefront in dealing with the key issues of the day.
