Sanctuaries and Partners Celebrate Cousteau Day!
On June 25, 2010, ONMS launches "Cousteau Day," a system-wide day of celebration of Jacques Cousteau's life, marking 13 years since his passing and 100 years since his birth on June 11, 1910. In his 87 years, Cousteau's immense contributions to marine science and conservation, including the production of more than 120 documentaries, advancing the science of scuba, and promoting environmental activism, are indisputable.
Join TBNMS in celebrating Cousteau Day:
June 24 at the Great Lakes Maritime Heritage Center, bringing Cousteau to a new generation of Great Lakes and Ocean explorers, children are invited to a reading of "Manfish," by Jennifer Berne, and "The Fantastic Undersea Life of Jacques Cousteau," by Dan Yaccarino.
