Gordon will celebrate the underwater world with amazing photographs of some of the ocean’s largest and some of its smallest creatures. And he has a warning about the future of these remarkable habitats as they face serious environmental perils and how conservation measures can save and preserve them.

    Emmy Award-winning Cinematographer Jonathan Bird will also present a recent episode of his CINE Golden Eagle-winning educational program Jonathan Bird's Blue World.

    In addition, Oceanic Research Group will show its new educational internet video Sharks: Predators with a Purpose that highlights the plight of sharks due to shark fishing and finning.

    All of this will help raise money for the Oceanic Research Group, Inc. Marine Scholarship Program which aids college or graduate students pursuing marine-related studies. The 2007 scholarship will be awarded at the benefit.
