Fabien Cousteau | A New Era of Ocean Exploration

Join Fabien Cousteau to learn about PROTEUS™, the International Space Station of the Ocean and its 3D mapping initiative off the coast of Curaçao, an important step in the decades-long movement to map the entire surface of the ocean floor.

Currently only about 80% of the ocean hasn’t been explored. 3D maps can provide a window to the mysteries at the bottom of the ocean. In this session Fabien will dive into how mapping the ocean floor can make navigation safer and more efficient, while obtaining a better understanding of ocean circulation, weather systems, sea level rise, and climate change, that can lead to more ways to conserve and sustainably use the oceans.

In this session Fabien will dive into how mapping the ocean floor can make navigation safer and more efficient, as well as how it can help us track and protect marine life, predict natural disasters, and even understand the impact of climate change.

As the first grandson of Jacques-Yves Cousteau, Fabien spent his early years aboard his famous grandfather’s ships, Calypso and Alcyone; and learning how to scuba dive on his fourth birthday. He is well known for his study of sharks and from 2000-2002, Fabien was an Explorer-at-Large for National Geographic.

In June 2014, Fabien and his team of aquanauts embarked on Mission 31, the longest science expedition to take place at Aquarius, the world’s only underwater marine laboratory located in Florida. Early in 2016 he founded the Fabien Cousteau Ocean Learning Center (“OLC”) to fulfill his dream of creating a vehicle to make a positive change in the world.
