Meet a Pelican Pro: Alexandra Cousteau
Last week we introduced you to Jeb Corliss, a hardcore BASE-jumper. As a member of our team of Pelican Pros, Jeb incorporates our Pelican ProGear ™ line into his lifestyle. However, Jeb isn’t the only Pelican Pro. Today, we’d like to introduce you to Alexandra Cousteau.
As the founder of Blue Legacy, Alexandra works to educate the masses on critical water issues. She carries on the work of her father, Phillippe Cousteau, Sr, and grandfather, Jacque-Yves Cousteau to ensure that “mainstream” audiences recognize—and hopefully take action upon—the world’s water issues.
Cousteau has also been honored as a National Geographic “Emerging Explorer”—an elite group of eleven visionary young trailblazers from around the world who push the boundaries of discovery, adventure, and global problem solving.
Since Alexandra carries video, audio and computer equipment on her treks, she uses Pelican ProGear products to make sure it’s safe. Her favorite Pelican Pro Gear products include the 1075 Tablet Case and the Urban Elite Tablet Backpack. These watertight cases keep water and dust out, while balancing the air pressure within to keep her gadgets safe.
