Sea Studios Foundation
Sea Studios Foundation was created to increase the publicís understanding and participation in science and environmental issues. To meet its goal, the foundation produces projects based on a new strategy to integrate traditional forms of media, such as television, the Internet and informal learning institutions. Research is beginning to show that media integration can be an effective tool for moving people to awareness and then to action. The foundation was formed in 1996 as a nonprofit 501(c) (3) organization and it has offices in Monterey, California. Since the foundationís inception, it has produced two international projects with National Geographic Television; The Shape of Life and Strange Days on Planet Earth.
