We Spoke to Céline Cousteau About How To Be Better Conservationists

Sign in to save article

Celine Cousteau — the granddaughter of famed explorer and conservationist Jacques-Yves Cousteau — is a socio-environmentalist and filmmaker who grew up exploring areas where Indigenous populations still live.

Cousteau's 2019 debut film, Tribes on the Edge, is about her experience visiting Vale do Javari, the second-largest Indigenous territory in Brazil and home to 5,000 Indigenous peoples from six tribes. The film brings to light how these tribes are impacted by land threats, health crises, and human rights issues — and what viewers can do to help protect them. 

CircleAround's Katka Lapelosová caught up with Cousteau for an Inspiring Women Video interview to discuss her life, her work, and how we can be better conservationists to help save at-risk Indigenous populations.
