Building a Brighter Tomorrow through National Marine Sanctuaries - SOLD OUT

Marjorie Lynn Bank Lecture Series

Explorer. Environmentalist. Educator. Filmmaker. For over five decades, Jean-Michel Cousteau has dedicated himself to advocating for our water planet. A voice for the ocean, he inspires audiences worldwide to act responsibly and preserve the fragile underwater ecosystems that are so intricately tied to all life on Earth.

Jean-Michel has been exploring the underwater realm since his father—ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau—first threw him overboard at age 7 with newly invented scuba gear on his back. Honoring his heritage, he founded Ocean Futures Society, which reaches millions of people globally through environmentally oriented TV specials, public service announcements, school programs, articles, books and lectures.

Jean-Michel has produced more than 80 films, including his PBS-KQED documentary “Voyage to Kure,” which inspired President George W. Bush to declare the Northwest Hawaiian Islands a marine national monument in 2006. He is the recipient of the Environmental Hero Award and the National Marine Sanctuaries Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award, and now directs his efforts toward creating more national marine sanctuaries.
