Located 110 miles off the Louisiana/Texas coast, the corals of the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary rank among the healthiest in the world. 'Window in the Waves' tells the intriguing story of how these reefs were formed and why they are crucial to the global environment.

“It’s really interesting that so many Gulf Coast residents aren’t aware of these world-class coral reefs. They’re in our own backyard and thrive in the middle of one of the busiest oil and gas production areas on earth. 'Window in the Waves' allows us to learn and care about a miraculous place that is like no other in the world,” Richard shared.

A Baton Rouge creative, Richard has been a frequent visitor to Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary since 2000. Over the course of hundreds of dives, he has gathered stunning high-definition footage of one of nature’s most amazing treasures and the diverse creatures that call it home.

Underwriting support for 'Window in the Waves' was provided by Shell, Apache Corporation, National Marine Sanctuary Foundation, American Petroleum Institute, Total Foundation and Fling Charters.
