  • America's Underwater Adventures, Pt. 2
    Part 2 of 2. Belief in the resilience of the natural system, especially under water, has never been more verifiable than with the advent of marine protected areas such as the National Marine Sanctuaries. Jean-Michel Cousteau and his crew team up with scientists, naturalists and policy makers to reveal to stunning beauty and critical importance of these underwater natural treasures. Sailing to, and diving beneath thirteen 'parks' within the National Marine Sanctuary system, the team will reveal worlds little known and rarely visited along America's shorelines. Some sanctuaries are vital undersea habitats, historical sites and endangered reefs. Others are rich bays, banks and seamounts, and the breeding waters for critical ocean species such as rare sea turtles and the great whales. By visually experiencing the most up-to-date scientific review of each sanctuary, we begin to appreciate by the arcs between them that they are connected in a vast, unified system. A system that is, though nevertheless 'protected,' vulnerable. Narrated by Robert Redford.moreless

    The Cousteau team follows gray whales from the nursery lagoons of Baja California north to frigid feeding grounds in the Bering Sea.
  • The Gray Whale Obstacle Course
    There is no whale on earth like the Gray Whale. It is the whale with the longest migration route and the most urban whale, passing some of the world's busiest cities and ports, along some of the most polluted coastlines. The only large whale to be studied in captivity, and it is the least changed for over 600,000 years. Yet, it is also one of the first to face extinction. The gray whale is the only whale removed from the endangered species list, then almost loved to death! Jean-Michel Cousteau and his team of young divers and scientists follow the annual migration of these traveling giants from Baja to the Arctic to investigate clues to a sudden decrease of population among the gray whale and to examine the less visible and more ominous obstacles these unique whales face in their struggle to survive. Narrated by Pierce Brosnan.moreless
