A globally recognized advocate on water quality and policy, Alexandra Cousteau continues the work of her renowned grandfather Jacques-Yves and father Philippe Cousteau. With the unique ability to draw audiences into the weighty issues of policy, politics, and action, Cousteau is dedicated to advocating the importance of conservation and sustainable management of water resources in order to preserve a healthy planet. Her global initiatives seek to inspire and empower individuals to protect not only the ocean and its inhabitants, but also the human communities that rely on freshwater resources.
Cousteau brings expertise and energy to environmental issues. In 2008, she was honored as one of National Geographic’s eleven “Emerging Explorers”—an elite group of visionary young trailblazers from around the world who push the boundaries of discovery, adventure, and global problem solving. In addition to continuing her work as a National Geographic Emerging Explorer, Cousteau serves as chief environmental correspondent, water expert, and host for Discovery Channel’s Planet Green and publishes a monthly syndicated column through Readers Digest International.
