From an early age, Rupert Howes was passionate about nature. Influenced by conservationists like David Attenborough, he was determined to make the world more sustainable. Although he ultimately became an economist instead of a marine biologist, he never strayed from his childhood passion.

The Marine Stewardship Council is an organisation that promotes sustainable seafood practices worldwide. Among their many initiatives is the development of a certification program that sets the minimum standards for fisheries globally and provides consumers with an easy means for identifying sustainably sourced fish. To promote their annual event, Sustainable Seafood Day, they asked us to develop a TVC that raised awareness of the threat of overfishing and encouraged people to switch to MSC certified seafood. The above TVC was developed in response to this brief, pro bono, and ran in both Australia and France in the weeks leading up to the event.

Also, through the direct efforts of the MRC, the Indian River Lagoon received national recognition in 1990 as a National Estuary of Significance by ...
