About JEAN-MICHEL COUSTEAU: OCEAN ADVENTURES
In April 2009, Jean-Michel Cousteau returns with two new expeditions in the PBS signature environmental series JEAN-MICHEL COUSTEAU: OCEAN ADVENTURES (pbs.org/kqed/oceanadventures), produced by KQED in San Francisco and Ocean Futures Society. Cousteau and his team of explorers travel to the farthest reaches of the globe to learn the latest discoveries about two of the most appealing marine mammals on earth, beluga and orca whales. He and his acclaimed diving team, which includes his son, Fabien, his daughter, Celine, as well as his collaborator, Holly Lohuis, explore a thrilling panorama of natural beauty and learn about efforts to protect these whales from the threats posed by human activities and climate change. Combining science and discovery with expert storytelling and astonishing high-definition footage, the new specials premiere nationally in April with the one-hour “Sea Ghosts” (beluga whales) and the two-hour “Call of the Killer Whale” (orcas) (check local listings).
