the Legacy continues…………………….
Gregory R. Mann, Ph.D. {ret.}

Welcome to the “OCEAN TREASURES” Memorial Library which contains my personal field research materials encompassing the years 1971 to 2002. The library was originally created in July of 2001 within the Yahoo Groups and in December of 2013, the library was relocated to its new website which now provides the advancement of the most current modern technology to carry on with its worldwide legacy.

Many of the photographs, documents and posters contained within this website, were solid education tools used in my outreach science program “OCEAN TREASURES”. The program spanned 19-years (1988-2008) of displaying unique assembly/classroom presentations involving a combination of multi-media display & interactive hands-on items which included various prepared oceanic marine animals and covered pre-K to collegiate curriculum within the American, Canadian and Australian education systems.

The memorial section honors a trio of gentlemen, each of whom I had the distinct pleasure of personally meeting during my career. Dr. Michael A. Bigg (“the Father of Killer Whale Research” )Jacques-Yves Cousteau (“the Captain” ) and Steven R. Irwin (“the Crocodile Hunter” ) each during their lifetime and each in their own extraordinary way, truly enhanced the field of the marine biological sciences as well as my own personal studies.
