Ambassadors of the Environment

The Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ambassadors of the Environment program is an “environmental and cultural education center with excursions led by expert naturalists.” The program’s intention is to inspire people to live a more sustainable life by helping them understand the relationships between land to sea, humans to nature, people to people and present to future.  According to Jean-Michel Cousteau, “We expect everyone, by learning more about our natural world and their places within it, to return to their communities as environmental stewards or ambassadors of the environment.” The program offers opportunities for people to learn about Hawaii’s particular ecosystems while also showing the relation to larger global systems. Some of the activities that the Ambassadors of the Environment program offer, include:

  • Hiking through the Hawaiian rain forest
  • Snorkeling among Maui’s beautiful coral reefs
  • Participating in underwater photography sessions
  • Always exploring the relevance of Hawaiian culture

The program offers a Children and Youth Program (From Age 5) as well as an Adult and Family Program. You can also participate in Whale Watching. Many of the activities are scheduled for certain days and some events are strictly seasonal. For a complete list of the activities offered by the program, see: Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ambassadors of the Environment. You can also take a look at the video, “Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ambassadors of the Environment” to see for yourself why their objective to “educate children” is so important:
