Ocean Frontiers III 

Join us on September 20, 2018 at 6:30 pm when Gotham Whale will present Ocean Frontiers III, a documentary produced by Green Fire Productions. This is a truly unique and hopeful ocean film that chronicles the efforts to plan for a healthy, safe, and sustainable future. It explores the intersection of national security, maritime commerce, fishing, and recreation, plus expanding industries such as offshore wind energy and aquaculture, coupled with scientific discovery. The film tells the story of how ocean planning helps us manage and balance all the uses of our ocean to keep it thriving for generations to come. Savor rare underwater footage of stunning marine life along the coast from Virginia to Maine and hear from a range of people who are leading the way to a sustainable and thriving ocean.

As the blue planet’s burgeoning populace faces an uncertain future, never before have the world’s oceans been called upon to serve so many, while suffering so much. To address this, people around the world are engaged in ocean planning. In North America, the U.S. and Canada have created ocean plans to help guide management and conservation of our oceans. State, federal and tribal governments are working together with scientists and a wide array of marine stakeholders including maritime commerce, fishing and recreation plus the growing industries of offshore wind energy and aquaculture. 

Green Fire Productions (the filmmakers) works with more than 1,000 partners to bring the Ocean Frontiers films to communities, the workplace, classrooms, aquaria and museums.  The films leave audiences with sense of hope that change is possible through collaboration and science-based decision making that benefit our ocean and ocean economies. Green Fire Productions has traveled North America from coast to coast, capturing the inspiring stories of people working together to sustain our seas and our ocean economies.

At the conclusion of the documentary, there will be a panel discussion about the effects of ocean changes on our environment through the years. Admission is $10 for guests and Museum members are free. Light refreshments will be served.
