Exploring a California Sanctuary
August 3, 2018
The Academy's Gary Williams works with NOAA scientists and others, using an ROV to explore the unknown in the deep canyons of Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary. The sanctuary is close to San Francisco in distance, but feels far, far away.
While the Academy is thrilled to reopen, the impact of our 7-month closure will be felt for years to come. You can help us inspire new audiences, protect threatened ecosystems, and bring science to students around the world by making a tax-deductible gift today.
