Educator Guide to America's Underwater Treasures
Jean-Michel Cousteau, his son, Fabien, his daughter, Celine, and his team of expert divers set out to investigate, for the first time, all 13 of our National Marine Sanctuaries and their distinct ecosystems. While discovering what makes each of them unique, the team also explores what threatens these sites and what is being done. Traversing thousands of miles in this two-hour episode, the Ocean Adventures team goes below and above the sea off the coasts of Michigan, Texas, Florida, North Carolina, Georgia, Massachusetts, California, Washington, Hawai'i and American Samoa on a mission to introduce Americans to these vibrant but fragile marine sanctuaries.
