Abby Interview's Jean-Michel Cousteau about Humpback Whales

Ten-year old Abby, who is writing a report about humpback whales, asked Jean-Michel if she could ask him several questions for a report she is working on. Jean-Michel was thrilled to talk with Abby to share his thoughts about humpback whales and how he believes that young people just like Abby will be the future leaders of tomorrow. Jean-Michel says that kids have so much more information available to them now compared to when he was a kid – and that they will make much better decisions to help the planet than previous generations have made.
