The Seattle Aquarium board of directors and event Co-Chairs Eric Steinwinder and Lisa Schafer invite you to our sixth annual fundraising breakfast benefiting conservation and research, with keynote speaker Julie Packard, founding executive director of the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Thursday, October 18
Sheraton Seattle Hotel, Metropolitan Ballroom
1400 6th Avenue, Seattle

Event schedule
Registration: 7:30am
Program: 8–9am

Join us as Julie shares her conservation vision for aquariums as places that build constituencies that work to protect and restore the world’s aquatic ecosystems that sustain all life.

Based on a lifelong passion for science and nature, Julie Packard has led the Monterey Bay Aquarium to become a global force for ocean conservation. She chairs the board of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, a global leader in deep ocean science and technology and she is deeply engaged in ocean conservation strategies through her work as a trustee of the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. Julie served as a member of the Pew Oceans Commission, which published a blueprint for improving governance of America's ocean waters, and more recently served on the California Parks Forward Commission to develop a sustainable path for California's state parks. Julie holds a master’s degree in biology with a focus in marine algal ecology.


Guests will be invited to strengthen our marine conservation programs with a suggested minimum donation of $150.
