Clément Perrette has been working in the financial industry for the past 25 years. He is a fixed income portfolio manager who manages the RAM Global Bond Total Return fund. His work has taken him from France to the United Kingdom and Switzerland. All three countries border the ocean which explains in part his passion for that and sealife. He now splits his time between working for RAM Active Investments and pursuing passion projects meant to raise awareness about the ocean, sea life, and the threats they face.
He is an executive producer of the upcoming Ocean Souls movie. The movie, expected to be released in the second quarter of 2020, is meant to affect public opinion by showing people the beauty and intelligence of whales and dolphins. The goal is to stop countries, especially Japan, from killing these majestic animals for little reason.
Clément Perrette says the movie does not feature shocking images and is not designed to create controversy. Instead, it uses the natural beauty of these animals, fun, and science to show people why these species are worth saving. Whales and dolphins are intelligent, feeling animals with strong social bonds.
Except for humans, whales and dolphins are the world’s most intelligent animals.
Evolving from land animals roughly 50 million years ago, they have brains that are not only large but are highly complex. They have advanced language skills and each individual in a pod has its own name. In many ways, their language skills and social organization are the equal of humans.
Despite this, Japan is fishing these animals. Clement Perrette points out there is little reason for that country to do so as they don’t need this source of protein or the money that it creates. He hopes more people share this opinion after viewing his film.
