The Fabien Cousteau Ocean Learning Center was founded in 2016 as a 501(c)(3) by world-renowned oceanographic explorer, conservationist and documentary filmmaker Fabien Cousteau to fulfill his dream of creating a vehicle for positive change in the world. The FCOLC focuses on Public Awareness (SEE), Education (LEARN) and Special Projects (DO). Some of these activities and initiatives include: coral reef restoration programs, sea turtle restoration programs, and educational resources that can be used for elementary grades to the university level, and museum programming. These components allow us to empower communities and children to help restore local water ecosystems through the healthy “replanting” of key marine species and empower future stewards of ocean conservation.
