Voyage to Kure Callout

In the 2004 Voyage to Kure expedition the Ocean Futures Society team traveled to a remote island chain, the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands to explore one of the last pristine coral reefs in the Pacific.

The beauty and the horror of this Ocean Adventures Jean-Michel Cousteau exploration and film inspired then-President George W. Bush to create the then-largest marine sanctuary in the world to protect the pristine coral reefs, large shark populations, endangered monk seals and millions of seabirds from environmental impacts like the growing Pacific garbage patch. A film that made a difference.
