SEA OF SHADOWS has brought together a powerful coalition of scientists, investigators, activists, politicians and nonprofits working together to save the vaquita and to help highlight the plight of endangered species across the globe.
The film aims to communicate the urgency of the crisis and harness public attention to inspire meaningful action. SEA OF SHADOWS shines a spotlight on the links between wildlife crime, global security and economic instability, mobilizing audiences to help advance policy and on-the-ground protections. The film has screened for the United Nations in New York City and for politicians on the floor of the Mexican Senate, is touring as part of the U.S. State Department’s American Film Showcase and was presented at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, by the secretary general of CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species).
With your help we will continue to fight for key conservation victories, including enforcement of the gillnet ban in the Sea of Cortez by November 2019 and a return of the compensation program for local fishermen during the transition to economic alternatives.
