A leading environmentalist, adventurer and explorer, Céline Cousteau truly embodies the TreadRight philosophy. As a documentary filmmaker and gifted storyteller, Céline has travelled the world working to help amplify the voices of the amazing individuals who are working to protect ecosystems, wildlife, and people. In 2015, TreadRight welcomed Céline as our official ambassador, helping us tell the stories of our projects and partners. Learn more about Céline’s work on the film and impact campaign titled Tribes on the Edge.
Céline’s life of global travel has seen her embark on expeditions to track the grey whale migration from Mexico to Alaska, research shark species in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, and bring the stories of the Amazon Rainforest’s indigenous cultures to our backyards.
Céline has collaborated through TreadRight with its project partners to shed light on various sustainable travel topics, and in 2018 produced two TreadRight Storyteller videos. In India, she visited Wildlife SOS to bring awareness to the unknown perils of elephant riding. In Jordan, she showcased the benefits of community-based tourism through her visit to the Iraq Al-Amir Women’s Cooperative.
She has an incredible understanding and deep appreciation for the symbiotic relationship between travel and how it helps one to develop a true appreciation and respect for the planet. Céline regularly presents on our collective opportunity to MAKE TRAVEL MATTER®, and has spoken on behalf of The TreadRight Foundation in New York, Toronto, London and Jordan.
