The current community support for the eagle on Tract K is MOST encouraging as it validates a true commitment to our island’s environs leaving little doubt that the in-depth study of Marco’s ecosystems by two of MI Academy’s National Advisory Board members, Jean-Michel Cousteau and Dr. Richard Murphy will be valued as an international blueprint for marine education. For those who do not know, Dr. Richard Murphy, the Director of Education and Science for the Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ocean Futures Society, is to spend time on our island writing a marine curriculum which melds the study of our unique ecosystems into the four core subjects for the benefit of our entire school community. We are indeed most fortunate as this will be the first such curriculum ever written by the Society. Dr. Murphy’s list of credits over a 40 year career include: Creating and implementing "Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ambassadors of the Environment Program"; Creating the Sustainable Reefs program in conjunction with the United Nations, Association of Small Island States; writing storylines and editing scripts for a 52 part TV film series for children entitled, "Sea Scope”; authoring Coral Reefs – Cities Under the Sea; authoring over 60 articles in scientific and popular publications; teaching courses, with The International Ecotourism Society and other organizations, on sustainable management of coastal resources; photographing images of the Cousteau expeditions; presenting over 30 papers at scientific conferences; formulating and communicating environmental policy and information to an international public; insuring scientific accuracy in all Cousteau projects; organizing research aboard Calypso, Alcyone and land-based expeditions; writing for and editing various media, including the 21-volume Ocean World Of Jacques Cousteau series, Cousteau magazines (Calypso and Dolphin Logs), and filmstrips. This incredible world-class research/education will inarguably serve to enlighten us all as to how to best nurture our island environment, including our eagles. It is indeed encouraging to know we are all on the same page!
