On June 29, Creation, the story of Charles Darwin starring Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany, will be released on DVD; but, if just watching the movie isn't enough, Ambercrombie and Kent is giving you the opportunity to live it.

Hawaiian monk seals, green sea turtles and spinner dolphins also call the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument home. The Monument was once part of a Naval Air Facility but when the base closed in 1993, the focus changed from national defense to wildlife conservation.
