We’re excited to announce that Alexandra Cousteau, granddaughter of ocean explorer Jacques-Yves Cousteau, has become a senior advisor to Oceana.
Alexandra is a distinguished international ocean advocate, and as a senior advisor she will lend her environmental expertise and influence to help guide the organization’s global campaigns to protect and restore the oceans.
“I admire Oceana’s effectiveness,” said Alexandra. “In order to protect our oceans we need action that produces tangible results and that’s what Oceana does. I’ve traveled the globe exploring our oceans and I’ve learned from the world’s best, so I know what’s at stake. I trust in Oceana’s ability to protect the oceans and I’m thrilled to do my part to help it keep winning.”
Alexandra is also a National Geographic Explorer, founder of Blue Legacy International, and brand ambassador for Oceana expedition partner Revo Sunglasses.
“Alexandra comes from a family of ocean heroes; it’s in her blood. I can’t think of a better person to join Oceana as we tackle our second decade of ocean conservation,” said Oceana CEO Andy Sharpless. “She’s been at this since her first ocean expedition when she was four months old, so she has a level of experience and credibility that is extremely unique. We’re immensely fortunate to have her on our team”.
