Video: Jean Michel Cousteau visits territory
He described his visit to American Samoa's coral reef atoll, Swains Island, as a "jewel of the ocean."
He implored a group of young students to learn the lessons his generation never knew. He said the oceans can not be a trash bin of humanity or the universal sewer of the world.
And that the exosuit (pictured) will enable explorers like himself to retrieve the plants and animals of 300 meter depths to stir science, create new medicines and spur economies built around preserving the ocean environment.
