Seattle Aquarium welcomes Brian Skerry to SeaChange fundraiser

SEATTLE—On Tuesday, October 10, the Seattle Aquarium will hold its fifth annual fundraising breakfast benefiting conservation and research. Held at the Sheraton Seattle Hotel, this year’s SeaChange features Brian Skerry—internationally recognized National Geographic magazine photographer. Skerry will share his gripping portrait of the ocean as a place of beauty and mystery, a place in trouble and ultimately, a place of hope that will rebound with the proper attention and care. For almost two decades, Skerry has explored environments of extreme contrasts—from tropical coral reefs to diving beneath polar ice. In 2010, National Geographic named one of Brian’s images among their “50 greatest photographs of all time.”

“We are thrilled to have Brian Skerry as our keynote speaker for SeaChange,” said event chair Eric Steinwinder. “His powerful photography epitomizes the need to take action on behalf of ocean health—and fits perfectly with the Seattle Aquarium’s work to inspire conservation action in every individual we reach.”
