Blue Serengeti – Saturday, September 22
2017 IOFF OCEAN SCIENCE AWARD – Vaster than the Great Serengeti Parks of Africa, the Pacific Ocean is brimming with its own predators who swim across the ocean to feed on the abundant prey in the waters of the California National Marine Sanctuaries. Renowned Stanford University marine biologist, Dr.Barbara Block, uses cutting-edge camera tags to track the movements of marine creatures, giving us a rare, first-hand perspective on the life of a great white shark.
