On December 3rd we gathered (virtually) to celebrate over 25 years of protecting diversity, beauty and the importance of wild ocean places. The program featured our special guest Ian Shive and clips from his spectacular underwater IMAX film Hidden Pacific along with other ocean luminaries, and the announcement of our NEWEST Blue Park!
