Dear reef community,

I read with interest Steve Miller’s comments, “Absent are charismatic, 
camera-savvy, camera-friendly, willing, and respectable scientists who are widely 
known and accepted by the public as entertaining and truthful.”  I would like 
to call your attention to a new PBS series produced by Ocean Futures Society 
and KQED Public Broadcasting in San Francisco, entitled Jean-Michel Cousteau’s 
Ocean Adventures.   These TV documentaries include two hours on the Northwest 
Hawaiian Islands and two hours on the US National Marine Sanctuaries that 
include Florida Keys, Flower Gardens, Hawaii and American Samoa.   Although 
Jean-Michel is not a scientist the shows contain many interviews with scientists and 
managers who do address, in various ways, reef issues including threats, 
management strategies and even resilience and the future of reefs.

The NW Hawaiian Islands show, Voyage to Kure, will air Wednesday, April 5 and 
Wednesday, April 12 at 8 PM (www.pbs.org/oceanadventures).

Best regards,


Richard Murphy, Ph.D.
Director, Science and Education
