Ambassadors of the Environment is led by naturalists who do more than guide; they bring their knowledge, experience, wonder and passion to the world’s greatest playground: nature. Naturalists hold degrees from a wide range of science fields and are experienced in working with children. They’re trained by Jean-Michel Cousteau’s team and frequently participate in trainings with Dr. Richard Murphy, who’s been chief scientist with the Cousteau family for more than 40 years.
