An Evening with Fabien Cousteau
Tuesday, November 30 | 6:30 p.m.* – 7:30 p.m.
This event is free and open to the public with registration kindly requested.
Ashley Hall is thrilled to welcome aquanaut, ocean conservationist, and documentary filmmaker Fabien Cousteau to campus. Cousteau is the grandson of legendary explorer Jacques-Yves Cousteau and continues to fulfill his family’s legacy of protecting and preserving the planet’s extensive and endangered marine inhabitants and habitats.
Through a compelling multi-media presentation, Cousteau takes his audience to places beneath the Ocean one can only imagine. We will learn about The Fabien Cousteau Ocean Learning Center Programs including Sea Turtle Restoration that supports female empowerment in coastal communities in Nicaragua.

*Arrive at 6:00 p.m. to view student presentations inspired by the work of Fabien Cousteau and the UN Sustainable Development Goals, with a special focus on life below the sea.
