Gray’s Reef was a new shade of green on St. Patrick’s Day!

Gray’s Reef participated in Savannah’s historic St. Patrick’s Day Parade.St pats 1 W

With over 100,000 people lining the streets to cheer for the parade progression, and more than 200,000 others tuned in to live coverage of the event on local television and streaming webcast, this event put Gray’s Reef in front of a sea of Savannah’s residents and visitors. Riding in on a wave of enthusiasm, with a lifesize inflatable North Atlantic right whale calf harnessed to the float, and with staff and volunteers costumed as sea critters and jovial jellyfish, Gray’s Reef made a real splash at this popular event.St Pats 2 W

Gray’s Reef seized the parade opportunity for the first time this year with a goal to raise awareness of the sanctuary, and of the upcoming FareWhale Festival.
