Gray’s Reef, an undersea habitat located 19 miles east of Sapelo Island on Georgia’s coastline, was designated as a National Marine Sanctuary in one of the last official acts by President Jimmy Carter. To honor that day, Savannah Mayor Van Johnson designated this January 16 as the city’s inaugural Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary Day.
