Sustainability Film Series: Saving Sea Turtles

February 20, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Environmental Studies and the Alden Library present the sixth year of the Sustainability Film Series, working in partnership with the Athena Cinema and many other sponsors including the Global Arts Festival, April 1-5.
Our vision and goal are those of years past: to offer attendees the opportunity to acquire a deeper understanding of the current issues related to global environmental and sustainable challenges and solutions. We aim to bring together students, faculty and regional community members. The program recognizes the strength of this integration, coming together and learning from each other.
Following each screening we invite audience members to join us for a panel discussion hosted by faculty members, students and community members. Please join us for a conversation following these beautiful, thought-provoking and timely films. All admissions free.

Saving Sea Turtles: Preventing Extinction
Narrated by renowned scientist Dr. Sylvia Earle, this feature-length independent documentary tells the larger natural history story of the world’s rarest sea turtle, the Kemp’s Ridley and how humans pushed a healthy population to the precipice of extinction and are now slowly helping it to recover. From the beaches of Massachusetts to Mexico, Texas and Georgia, this film highlights the collaborative work that is being done to save a species from going extinct.
Sponsor Biological Sciences, Arts and Sciences.
