Holly Lohuis

Holly is a marine biologist with a degree from the University of California– Santa Barbara and for more than fifteen years has explored the world with Jean-Michel Cousteau and his team. A member of the expedition team for all eleven hours of the PBS series, Jean-Michel Cousteau Ocean Adventures, Holly acts as a liaison with scientists, and is responsible for confirming the factual accuracy of Ocean Futures Society documentaries and publications. As a marine educator, she has taught thousands of children and adults about the wonders and fragility of the marine environment and the importance of protecting our water planet for future generations.
Holly has been a marine educator for almost 20 years and, with the mentoring of Jean-Michel Cousteau, she has been involved with creating Ocean Futures Society’s consistent theme: the ocean is connected to the existence and lifestyle of every human being. For her educational outreach efforts, in 2009 Holly was honored with the Hall of Fame award from the San Juan School district in her hometown, Sacramento, California.
Jean-Michel’s father, Jacques Cousteau, often said, “People protect what they love” and through Holly’s stories, knowledge and passion, we understand the ocean’s importance and allure. Children and adults fall in love with the ocean and these adventures, which contain the critical message that we are all part of the web of life.
