Dear Friends and Supporters,

Join us for a LIVE Q&A event for the film SWAINS ISLAND – One of the Last Jewels of the Planet with Dave Jennings, Hans Van Tilburg, Jim Knowlton, and myself on February 24th at 1 pm PST.

The film documents an expedition to tiny Swains Island, located 200 miles north of American Samoa and reachable only by boat. The team camped on this remote Island that was recently added to the National Marine Sanctuary of American Samoa. Jean-Michel dives its pristine coral reefs and scientists search for clues to the island's past use, especially by early Polynesians, whalers and a copra plantation. They uncover many mysteries long-held on this tiny island in this fascinating Jean-Michel Cousteau adventure.
