"We inhabit a water planet, and unless we protect, manage, and restore that resource, the future will be a very different place from the one we imagine today." —Alexandra Cousteau
"My father and grandfather were both great inspirations. The best example they gave me was the importance of living a life of consequence, value and meaning. I honor their memories by creating a legacy of my own by speaking out for the preservation of our blue planet." —Alexandra Cousteau
