Ocean Frontiers Winter Film Series @ Denali Old Saybrook
February 22, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join Denali and Conservation Commission of Old Saybrook for their Winter Film series in the Denali community room. The event kicks off with Ocean Frontiers II on Thursday, February 22 at 7:00 pm in Old Saybrook.
Ocean Frontiers: The Dawn of a New Era in Ocean Stewardship 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 fishers and reef snorkelers and many more, all of them embarking on a new course of cooperation, to sustain the sea and our ocean economies.
This film explores how off the shores of New England, in a region steeped in old maritime tradition, comes a modern wave of big ships, energy industries, and a changing climate, testing the limits of an already crowded sea. But in a pioneering trial of far-sighted planning – pushed by blueprints for offshore wind energy – old residents and new are coming together to keep their ocean and livelihoods alive. New England’s experiences serve as an important milestone for all of us who care about the ocean.
