The Alliance for Community Media (ACM) announced recently that amp2‘s Your Sanctuary TV is this year’s National Conference Title Sponsor. The ACM Conference will take place May 29th through 31st in San Francisco, CA at the stately Westin St. Francis on Union Square. Appropriately enough, San Francisco Bay is on the edge of or adjacent to 3 separate National Marine Sanctuaries, namely The Gulf of the Farallones NMS, Cordell Bank NMS, and Monterey Bay NMS. The Gulf of the Farallones operates a Visitors Center at Historic Crissy Field very close to the Golden Gate Bridge and next to another landmark, Fort Mason. “With all the maritime heritage and history, Your Sanctuary TV seems an ideal Title Sponsor for this year’s conference”, remarked amp Executive Director Paul Congo. “And part of our welcome gift to attendees is a special visit to the Aquarium of the Bay,” added amp’s Outreach Coordinator Lindsey Bishop. “Your Sanctuary TV is a repository of quality Ocean and Earth Conservation video content that will be offered free of charge to members of the Alliance and all other community television stations across the country and throughout the world,” noted YSTV Executive Producer Stephen Ellzey. Among the dozens of quality programs available is a documentary by acclaimed Ocean filmmaker Robert Talbot on the Great White Sharks that favor both the Farallones and the outer edges of Monterey Bay as hunting grounds. Additional programming includes the popular Thank You Ocean PSA  and Podcast series and a collection of animated Ocean shorts by Cartoonist/Environmentalist Jim Toomey, who regularly pens “Shermans Lagoon”. “It”s hard to believe,” recalled amp Production Manager Michael Maritnes,”that 2 years ago we were sitting around the office dreaming about an Ocean Series called “Your Sanctuary” and now we’re launching an entire library of Ocean and Earth conservation content…it’s a real dream come true” The Your Sanctuary TV site yoursanctuarytv.org will go live on June 8th, which is World Oceans Day.

Your Sanctuary TV has added a content partner that will bring new worlds of wildlife, color and historic sites to the video vault. Waterways, (a co-production of the National Park Service, Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, and the Environmental Protection Agency) has agreed to allow Your Sanctuary TV to distribute 66 episodes of their spectacular program. Produced by the talented Erik Hutchins of Keys Digital Video, the program is brimming with underwater photography, wildlife images, and tightly scripted stories of the Southern Florida ocean and Everglades National Park. Here’s how  a Waterways brochure describes the program:

” For more than 15 years, “Waterways” has been educating viewers on the wonders of the world’s third largest coral reef, the diverse and colorful marine life that call it home, and centuries of cultural and maritime heritage. Experience cutting edge research and conservation from the comfort of your home! Learn how scientists are combating invasive species, protecting endangered animals, and promoting sustainable use of America’s great natural treasures. Get up close and personal with lionfish, alligators and panthers, or discover the secrets of historic forts and shipwrecks.”

“We are so grateful and so excited to welcome Waterways into the Your Sanctuary TV family”, said Executive Producer Steve Ellzey. “Having a program with such high production values and informative stories is absolutely  fabulous!”

Your Sanctuary TV, a repository of Ocean and Earth Conservation Video and Information, is set to launch on June 8th which is World Oceans Day.
