Upstream with Alexandra Cousteau

Alexandra Cousteau is the final speaker in the Blue Planet Forum series hosted at the Tennessee Aquarium and sponsored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

The series promotes awareness, conservation, preservation and protection of the ocean and the animals that depend on that environment.  Alexandra Cousteau is the third generation in her family to study and promote education about our aquatic environment, following the traditions of her grandfather Jacques-Yves Cousteau and her father  Phillippe Cousteau.  As founder of the nonprofit Blue Legacy, Alexandra Cousteau has led expeditions across the globe to document water issues and their impact on the environment, life, and communities.
