TM and Jean-Michel
The LA group with Jean-Michel Cousteau
While in DC, Team Marine members were able to meet with Jean-Michel Cousteau, son of Captain Jacques-Yves Cousteau, who spent much of his life exploring the oceans with his father. TM and the Captain's son congregated at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History on February 15th, 2011 where Cousteau was giving a presentation entitled "The Great Ocean Adventure." He spoke about his continued efforts in protecting our world's oceans. Sounds good to us! It was an honor to spend time with the legendary explorer, and again thank Alicia and the Aquarium of The Pacific for this opportunity.
"A lot of people attack the sea, I make love to it." - Jean-Yves Cousteau
