David Helvarg, Founder, Blue Frontier; Author, The Golden Shore
Michael Sutton, President, California Fish and Game Commission; Executive Director, Audubon California - Moderator

The Pacific Ocean significantly defined California’s storied history, from the San Francisco Bay to Monterrey to San Diego. Helvarg will discuss how Californians have related to the Pacific over time through commerce, national defense, energy and exploration. Helvarg will trace California’s progress from a late maritime frontier where people exploited and polluted the ocean to a world leader in coastal protection, marine science, innovation and wildlife restoration, and will discuss how – or if – the modern California model can be exported around the world. In addition to being an award-winning author, Helvarg is the founder of the ocean conservation group Blue Frontier.
