Cousteau and National Marine Sanctuary Visit

August 28, 2013

Today, we were fortunate to receive a visit by ocean explorer Jean-Michel Cousteau, son of Jacques Cousteau; National Marine Sanctuaries Director Dan Basta; and Allen Tom, National Marine Sanctuaries Pacific Islands Regional Director. Cousteau came to American Samoa to complete an expedition to Swains Island. He shared his enthusiasm for the explorations in Swains and the uniqueness of our islands’ coral reefs. It was a pleasure to spend time with them.

We also congratulate the National Marine Sanctuary of American Samoa for the one-year anniversary of their Ocean Center. We look forward to many more years.
