Michael Hanrahan of The Ocean Channel

Getting the message out to the public is challenging -- and getting the message itself is more challenging when the subject is the deep, largely unknown ocean.

Michael Hanrahan is one of California's communication pioneers bringing us the visuals, scientific information and conservation stories we need in order to understand the "backyard" of California. We appreciate his work and hope you explore his website and the videos he presents there for your education.

Michael Hanrahan is CEO and co-founder of The Ocean Channel (, a media company based in Santa Barbara and focused on the production and distribution of ocean content for internet audiences.

Michael is working on several media projects for Ocean Channel, including developing a web-based video encyclopedia of marine creatures for NOAA's National Marine Sanctuary Program and UC Santa Barbara's Marine Science Institute.

Santa Cruz Island preservation Hanrahan recently finished a film for The Nature Conservancy about its restoration work on Santa Cruz Island, one of the northern Channel Islands. Beyond Ocean Channel, Hanrahan has been working closely with acclaimed natural history filmmaker Mike deGruy on his epic two-hour Discovery Channel documentary about the giant squid.

Santa Cruz Island preservation In 2007, Michael led the inaugural summer for BLUE HORIZONS, a unique educational experience at UCSB that combines classes in marine and coastal issues of the global ocean with a nine-week "boot camp" on digital video production. Since 2004, Michael has been a board member of Santa Barbara's Environmental Defense Center (EDC). In 2003, he organized and produced the annual Santa Barbara Ocean Film Festival, which screens ocean films from around the world.
