Ocean Night featuring Ocean Frontiers
Thursday, May 3
Free for OC, Surfrider and Baykeeper members & children 10 and under.
Tainted waters, dying reefs, and failing fisheries, 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. OCEAN FRONTIERS takes us on an inspiring voyage to seaports and watersheds across the country. From the busy shipping lanes of Boston Harbor to an obscure little fishing community in the Pacific Northwest; from Americaís coral reef playground in the Florida Keys to the nationís 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 fishers and reef snorkelers and many more, all of them embarking on a new course of cooperation, in defense of the seas that sustain us. Ocean Frontiers shows unlikely allies coming together and crafting solutions for the good of ecosystems and industry, while not sugarcoating the conflicts or the sometimes-difficult road to the end result. The film shows the groups as true partners in the process.
