On Tuesday, March 22, we recognize the important role that water plays in the health of our planet and our bodies.
The concept of a Blue Issue came to us courtesy of Alexandra Cousteau (granddaughter of marine legend Jacques Cousteau), who was the cover subject of our “Get Into Nature” issue back in June 2009. She proposed the idea during the course of our photo shoot, and we were instantly sold.
Alexandra Cousteau comes from a legendary family of explorers, and like her grandfather and father, she, too, is dedicated to exploring, discovering and preserving the natural resources that sustain us all.
The world's oceans deserve more attention, says Philippe Cousteau Jr. So he's using his famous name and his gift for storytelling to raise the oceans' profile - and, he hopes, to ensure a better future for the planet.
