      The deep blue waters of the Pacific Ocean are teeming with life. Islands that barely rise above the ocean’s surface are home to massive seabird rookeries, and underneath the waves, vibrant coral reefs that give life to species found nowhere else on Earth. These wild and wondrous protected waters encompass the healthiest coral reefs in U.S. waters as well as some of the most pristine atolls on Earth. They also help safeguard a rich cultural history that spans millennia—from Polynesian sacred sites to World War II battlegrounds.

      Explore these wondrous places through Hidden Pacific, a pioneering film profiling the Pacific Ocean’s protected and remote marine national monuments and national wildlife refuge islands. Then, join the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation for a live Q&A event on August 13th at 7:30pm ET/4:30pm PT/1:30 pm HT with filmmaker Ian Shive to discuss his film, the beauty and biodiversity of Pacific marine sanctuaries and monuments, and the need to protect them for our shared future.

       

      Because Hidden Pacific will not be released in theaters until 2021, we may only allow one-time screening access for this film on August 13th. Once registered for the event, attendees will receive a link and password to view the film prior to the scheduled live Q&A at 7:30pm ET/4:30pm PT/1:30pm HT.

      The live Q&A will take place on Facebook Live through our Blue Beacon: Hidden Pacific Facebook event page.

      Register today to join us for this special access event. Mark your calendars – we will see you on August 13th!

      About the Blue Beacon Series

      The National Marine Sanctuary Foundation’s Blue Beacon Series aims to bring to light the ocean and Great Lakes’ biggest challenges through panels, lectures, and film screenings hosted around the country in order to build communities of support for marine protected areas. This series builds on the momentum of Capitol Hill Ocean Week, the nation’s premier conference on ocean and Great Lakes policy issues by bringing these important conversations into locally relevant contexts.
