This month, Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary will host “Big Blue LIVE,” a global television and online event highlighting the incredible variety of marine life in the sanctuary.

The Monterey Bay has experienced an environmental rebirth. This wildlife success story attracts humpback whales, blue whales, sea lions, dolphins, elephant seals, sea otters, great white sharks, shearwaters, and much more for a once-a-year marine animal phenomenon.

A PBS and BBC co-production, Big Blue Live will bring together scientists, filmmakers and photographers, animal behaviorists, and other experts over the course of three spectacular nights. The program will be anchored live from a hub at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Viewers can watch one of nature’s great “reality shows” delivered through state-of-the-art filming technologies and live reports from air, sea, and below the waves.

“Big Blue LIVE” will air live on PBS over three nights, Aug. 31-Sept. 2, 2015, at 8:00-9:00 p.m. Eastern, with a second live feed to the West Coast at 8:00-9:00 p.m. Pacific.
