Jacques Cousteau Day video available

William Freeman reported to Historic City News that a video of Jacques Cousteau, the world famous explorer, made during his 1985 visit to St. Augustine, is available as a free download on his website; booksonnet.com.

Captain Cousteau’s observations about what is important to the planet are as relevant today as they were over twenty years ago.

Cousteau is considered by many to be the father of environmentalism. He won two Academy Awards for his films that added a new dimension, life beneath the seas, to the general knowledge of our planet.

Cousteau was a man who was welcome in every country in the world.

The Cousteau press conference, interviews and lectures with the Captain and his son Jean-Michel were recorded by St. Augustine artist Starr Emerson.
