Narrator and documentary script

Pierre Cousteau is the youngest son of Jacques-Yves Cousteau. Having studied biochemistry, space science and business administration (all at masters level), Pierre-Yves is constantly working to find innovative solutions for sustainable development, specifically for the protection of marine ecosystems, which are the foundations that support human survival and well-being. Pierre Cousteau launched Cousteau Divers in 2009, a citizen science initiative to unite recreational divers for the study and protection of marine life.

Pierre Cousteu today works for a variety of conservation organisations on projects ranging from fostering environmental stewardship values within European cultures, to governance and management of the High Seas, and in developing strategies for Blue Growth, combining finance and conservation. An avid scuba diver and underwater photographer, he is always eager to return to the sea to be reminded of its beauty and importance. Pierre-Yves was awarded the inaugural UNEP Global Marine Citizen Award at the United National Environmental Assembly, 2016.
