A Legacy of Love
Jean-Michel Cousteau's work in ocean exploration and preservation began as a child, with he and his younger brother Philippe tagging along with their famous father Jacques Custeau on his expeditions. (His Dad actually threw him in at 7 years old!) While he was a natural, his brother was the more passionate early on and Jean-Michel started his adult life on another path. The unfortunate loss of his brother Philippe in a plane crash brought Jean-Michel back to the sea, and he collaborated with his father for 17 years. Together they reorganized the Cousteau Society and produced educational films, further igniting Jean-Michel's love for exploring the world's oceans.
Jean -Michel continues his father's work and has developed his own passion for the watery earth and oceanic life.
Jean-Michel's Ocean Futures Society
A Voice for the Ocean
Founded by Jean-Michel Cousteau in 1999, the Ocean Futures Society is a non-profit marine conservation and education organization. The society was initially formed to care for the captive Killer Whale Keiko. The film "Free Willy" was based on Keiko's life. The research on wild orcas by Jean-Michel and his team led to pioneering husbandry techniques and helped foster Keiko's successful release into the wild.
Whether furthering education about killer whales and coral reefs, Researching the unknown, or creating films on our precious underwater treasures and marine sanctuaries, the Ocean Futures Society is dedicated to protecting the ocean.

J-M C Quoted:
"For years, we have looked at the ocean as a dumping ground. Because it was out of sight and out of mind, we have treated it like a universal sewer."
Protecting Ocean Habitats
According to Jean-Michel, the main problems facing Earth's water resources are habit destruction, overfishing, and pollution.
