Screening & Panel Discussion
6:00pm on Thursday May, 3, 2012: Massachusetts Whale Awareness Day
The Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society will offer the public a complimentary screening of Ocean Frontiers: The Dawn Of A New Era in Ocean Stewardship as a way to celebrate Massachusetts Whale Awareness Day. Securing the proclamation for Whale Awareness Day was only the first step for WDCS, the most important part is to ensure that as many people as possible recognize the various species that live off our coast and that everyone does their part to help eradicate the threats that they face. After the movie experts will discuss the issues at hand in our area and what individuals can do to help lessen the impact we have on the whales native to our area. Free tickets must be reserved through www.whales.org.
The myth of the boundless ocean is no more. But from the troubled waters now rises a new wave of hope, of prosperity through preservation, playing out in communities across the country and intimately captured in the new film by Green Fire Productions, Ocean Frontiers. This documentary and outreach campaign to inspire and mobilize audiences to better care for the ocean, for the good of all.
Ocean Frontiers takes us on an inspiring voyage to seaports and watersheds across the country—from the busy shipping lanes of Boston Harbor to a small fishing community in the Pacific Northwest; from America’s coral reefs in the Florida Keys to the nation’s premier seafood nursery in the Mississippi Delta. Here we meet an intermingling of unlikely allies, of industrial shippers and whale biologists, pig farmers and wetland ecologists, sport and commercial fishermen, reef snorkelers and many more, all of them embarking on a new course of cooperation, in defense of the seas that sustain us.
