Home for Life® announces 2020 Event Schedule: Fall Gala

Fabien Cousteau

Home for Life's Fall Gala, the Fancy Feast, Welcomes Fabien Cousteau, Saturday, November 7, 2020.

World renowned oceanographic explorer, conservationist and documentary filmmaker Fabien Cousteau will headline Home for Life's® 2020 Fall Gala. The grandson of Jacques Cousteau,
Fabien grew up on the decks of the Calypso and Alcyone.


Fabien was an Explorer-at-Large for National Geographic and collaborated on a TV special aimed at changing public conceptions about sharks called "Attack of the Mystery Shark". He produced the documentary "Mind of a Demon" that aired on CBS. With the help of a large crew, Fabien created a 14-foot, 1,200-pound, lifelike shark submarine called "Troy" that enabled him to immerse himself inside the shark world.

Cousteau was part of a multi-hour series for PBS called "Ocean Adventures" with his father, Jean-Michel Cousteau, and sister, Céline. Inspired by his grandfather's 1978 PBS series
"Ocean Adventures".

In early 2009 Fabien began working with local communities and children worldwide to help restore local water ecosystems. He continues to presently fulfill these initiatives through Fabien Cousteau Ocean Learning Center ("OLC") his non-profit 501(c)(3) founded in early 2016 dedicated to the restoration of the world's water bodies through active community engagement and education.
