Length: 55:56

This second of a two-part show explores the most complex marine species on the planet, our counterparts in the sea, the orca, the rulers of the ocean. They are the most widely distributed marine mammal in the world. Their realm extends from the Arctic to the Antarctic. Orcas, also called killer whales, number fewer than 100,000 worldwide, and learning more about them is a global endeavor for Cousteau and his team of explorers, who travel to both the northern and southern hemispheres as they seek out killer whales in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. watch

There are places on this planet where it's a marvel that anything survives. In the cold Arctic waters of the far north, the sea is alive with sound. The canaries of the sea are singing. They're beluga whales, named from the Russian word for "white ones." They're an evolutionary surprise, a warm-blooded mammal in a numbingly cold sea. Resembling curious ghosts, these intelligent mammals use one of the most complex sonars of any animal. In this episode, Jean-Michel Cousteau travels with his team to the high Arctic to determine why some beluga groups are thriving and others are disappearing. There's a clear connection between human activity and the beluga's future. The beluga's world is now ground zero for climate change, what threatens them is not confined to the Arctic, it's global. What lies ahead for the beluga could become prophecy for many species everywhere, including our own. watch

America's Underwater Adventures, Pt. 1

Length: 53:20
Aired: 9/20/2006

Part 1 of 2. Belief in the resilience of the natural system, especially under water, has never been more verifiable than with the advent of marine protected areas such as the National Marine Sanctuaries. Jean-Michel Cousteau and his crew team up with scientists, naturalists and policy makers to reveal to stunning beauty and critical importance of these underwater natural treasures. Sailing to, and diving beneath thirteen 'parks' within the National Marine Sanctuary system, the team will reveal worlds little known and rarely visited along America's shorelines. Some sanctuaries are vital undersea habitats, historical sites and endangered reefs. Others are rich bays, banks and seamounts, and the breeding waters for critical ocean species such as rare sea turtles and the great whales. By visually experiencing the most up-to-date scientific review of each sanctuary, we begin to appreciate by the arcs between them that they are connected in a vast, unified system. A system that is, though nevertheless 'protected,' vulnerable. Narrated by Robert Redford. watch
