In celebration of the 27th anniversary of Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, we will present awards to people and organizations who have recently contributed significantly to the sanctuary through education, conservation, research and business, including Secretary Panetta bestowing our highest honor, the Panetta Sea Star Award.
