Description Alexandra and her Blue Planet team will bring the thrill of adventure and the wonders of nature to audiences across the globe.In July, Alexandra Cousteau and her international Expedition Blue Planet team will depart on a 14,500-mile journey across North American to investigate global water issues “in the backyard” of one of the world’s leading economies.Living, working and exploring water stories together, Alexandra and her team will use everything from the underwater gear invented by her grandfather to the latest in satellite technology and live social media to bring thrill of adventure and the wonders of nature to audiences across the globe.Through the lens of this expedition, global audiences will have the rare opportunity to join the expedition from an entirely new angle: sitting down with the crew as they discuss the work of the day over meals they’ve prepared as a traveling “family,” experiencing the camaraderie and adventure of solving problems in the field, and experiencing firsthand the thrill of discovering grand places and meeting everyday people in cities and villages along the way.Throughout the journey, the team will explore some of the great water treasures of the region, investigate issues surrounding water conservation, as well as bear witness to stories of people from all walks of life working to solve one of the great challenge of our generation – the global water crisis.
