Proceeds from this event will benefit Ocean Inspiration: A tribute to Jacques Cousteau's 100th anniversary.

Céline Cousteau (CauseCentric Productions) and Lauretta Burke (World Resources Institute/Reefs at Risk Initiative) will present.

Ocean Inspiration will be an occasion to celebrate, recognize, and reward the achievements of ocean advocacy in any and all its forms. This two-day event, to be held October 9-10, 2010 in New York City, will include an evening gala celebration and free public forum. For more information see or join the online conversation on Facebook.

You can also support Ocean Inspiration with a tax-deductible contribution.

A portion of the proceeds from Ocean Inspiration will be designated for World Resources Institute’s Reefs at Risk initiative. World Resources Institute is joining forces with CauseCentric Productions to create a series of micro-documentaries for the Reefs at Risk initiative, produced by Céline Cousteau. The Reefs at Risk initiative will launch in early 2011 with several international events.
