After transitioning from an early career in the music business, David French became a fulltime advocate of the need to maintain healthy oceans for humanity, when he joined the Antinea foundation (Aka. Fondation Pacifique) in 2007. His first task involved using his creative talents there to co-write and coordinate, with IUCN, the opening ceremony for the world conservation congress held in Barcelona, in October 2008. He then went on to work on strategic development and key partnerships for the Foundation’s main project, The Changing Oceans Expedition, which was launched in 2009. This role included bringing onboard a core scientific mission - to validate and improve “a global map of human impact on marine ecosystems” (B. S. Halpern et al), the management of scientific missions in several countries and many awareness campaigns, involving local communities, governments and corporations, across a range of different cultures. Finding inspiration in this map David went on to create the organisation My Drop In The Oceans ®, which was founded as an innovative new approach for companies and consumers, with the help of civil society and the public sector, to produce and to consume goods and services in ways that promote a healthy and productive environment for all.
