01 Mar 2022 Some Kind Of Magic – Alexandra Cousteau on how her deep connection to the wonder of the oceans drives her activism
In this episode, I speak with journalist, filmmaker, and ocean activist Alexandra Cousteau. Alexandra has a long legacy of working to protect our world’s oceans and is the founder of Oceans 2050.
She is also on the board of the incredible environmental organization Oceana, which works to protect and restore the oceans on a global scale, and it was Oceana who originally connected me with Alexandra.
If Alexandra’s last name sounds familiar, it’s because she continues the work of her grandfather was Jacques-Yves Cousteau, and her father Philippe Cousteau. Continuing that legacy, Alexandra has also stood at the forefront of the world ocean advocacy ocean community, and we talked at length about her personal and family connection to the oceans, what the legacy of being a Cousteau meant for her as she established her own path in ocean advocacy, and how she was changed forever by a day snorkeling with her daughter in the Philippines.
