Philippe Cousteau Children Continue Environmental Legacy

ARLINGTON, VA (December 4, 2001) — Viget Labs, an Arlington-based provider of web-based software solutions, has announced the launch of its latest client destination site -- for The Philippe Cousteau Foundation. With this most recent project, Viget Labs has helped The Foundation provide a comprehensive online resource for scientists, educators, environmentalists, and hobbyists.

"We're pleased to have been able to work closely with The Philippe Cousteau Foundation to develop a site that conveys the passion, knowledge, and integrity of its founders and honored namesake," said Brian Williams, Viget Labs co-founder and project leader.

The Foundation's web site features dynamic, feature-rich content; easy-to-use site tools for printing and email sharing; and seamless integration with its online store. The Philippe Cousteau Foundation plans to use its web site to promote its message of exploration, conservation, and education in much the same way that Jacques-Yves and Philippe Counsteau used film in the 1960s and 1970s to introduce global audiences to the undersea world.
