Cousteau Weekend: South Africa, Sanctuaries for Life

Welcome back to COUSTEAU for another #CousteauWeekend special film.

COUSTEAU will be bringing you a #CousteauWeekend film every week during the COVID-19 outbreak.  Stay aware of the latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak, available on the WHO website and through your national and local public health authority.

This week our film is South Africa, Sanctuaries for Life

South Africa, Sanctuaries for Life

Whether in encounters with the Himbas or the Bushmen, whose cultural traditions still survive, or with the Karretje nomads of the great Karoo Plain, or the Afrikaners of the interior, spiritual heirs to the first white colonists; whether it’s a tale of sharks or elephants, all the adventures of the Cousteau team in South Africa share the vibrant colour and the heady perfume of the region.

But the true wealth of South Africa lies in its unique animal life, which the Alcyone crew observed and studied closely. The mammals have adapted to the lack of water: carnivores drink the blood of their prey while herbivores graze at dawn when the plants are damp with dew. 

See you next week for a new film.

It is now quicker and easier for you to support the work of the Cousteau Society. Equipe Cousteau and the Society are dedicated to the protection and improvement of the quality of life for present and future generations.
