Dopo anni di ricerche, viaggi e riprese, è uscito nelle sale cinematografiche del mondo il film documentario sulla plastica che inquina gli oceani "A Plastic Ocean", prodotto dalla rete internazionale di fondazioni “Plastic Oceans”: nel lavoro, che racconta gli studi scientifici sull’inquinamento degli oceani portati avanti da ricercatori dei cinque continenti, una parte è dedicata al progetto “Plastc Busters” dell’Università di Siena.
, dedicato allo studio e alla lotta all’inquinamento da microplastiche nel mar Mediterraneo.
”. Proprio durante il campionamento sulle balene, la troupe di “Plastic Oceans”, insieme alla pluri campionessa mondiale di apnea Tanya Streeter ha girato splendide immagini nei mari della Sardegna, in quel “santuario” dei cetacei che è una delle zone a più alta protezione del Mediterraneo, purtroppo in pericolo perché pesantemente minacciato, oltre che dagli altri inquinanti, da ingenti quantità di plastica.
La troupe di giornalisti che ha realizzato il documentario proviene in larga parte dalle BBC ed è capitanata da Jo Ruxton, specializzata nei documentari naturalistici e nelle riprese sottomarine, produttrice anche di “The Blue Planet”. 
La rete non profit “Plastic Oceans”, sostenuta a livello globale da numerose organizzazioni ambientaliste, tra cui il WWF, Greenpeace, Blue Ocean, Sea Shepherd e molte altre, sta realizzando una imponente campagna di comunicazione per documentare la “catastrofe globale dell’inquinamento provocato dalla plastica”, distribuendo il film nel mondo e accompagnandolo con azioni di divulgazione ed educazione.
Tutte le informazioni sulla campagna, e il trailer del film, sono sul sito web http://www.plasticoceans.org .

"A Plastic Ocean" Documentary Screening: Sea Shepherd Toronto

Join Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (Toronto Chapter) for the Toronto Premiere of 'A Plastic Ocean' on World Oceans Day. 

This high-end documentary feature film was made by the Plastic Oceans Foundation, a global network of independent not-for-profit and charitable organisations united in their aims to change the way we deal with plastic waste by challenging society's perception that this indestructible substance can be treated as 'disposable'. They seek to change the world's attitude to plastic within one generation.

Filmed in 20 locations around the world, "A Plastic Ocean" provides a global perspective on the issue of plastic waste in our oceans and examines the extent of the problem. Most importantly, the documentary shows us the ways that we can turn it around not just through knowledge and behavioural changes but with amazing new technology. It has the potential to benefit our health and that of our children, our environment and our seas.

Sea Shepherd merchandise will be available for purchase throughout the evening.

6:00: Doors open
6:45 - 8:30: "A Plastic Ocean" Screening (104 mins)
8:30 - 9:00: Q&A with guest speaker Chelsea Rochman, Assistant Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at University of Toronto. 

One of Professor Rochman's research objectives is "to determine and quantify the sources and sinks of plastic debris in freshwater and marine habitats. Current and ongoing projects include measuring the sources and sinks of microplastic into urban watersheds across North America, examining plastic as a source of chemicals to aquatic habitats and quantifying plastic and associated chemical contaminants in wildlife (e.g., birds and fish), including fish and shellfish sold directly for human consumption."

"JEEDARA" - the Film - USA Premier

Join us this World Oceans Day for the exclusive USA Premiere screening of "Jeedara the Film" documenting our fight to keep oil giants out of the Great Australian Bight.

jeedarathefilm.org

In 2010 BP was responsible for the worlds largest oil spill in the Gulf Of Mexico. Over several months, the rig spewed nearly 5 million barrels of oil into the ocean, killing millions of animals and destroying the surrounding environment.

Less than a year later, the Australian Government signed papers allowing BP to come to Australia and drill in deeper and rougher seas.

In 2016 The Great Australian Bight Alliance announced the launch of 'Operation Jeedara' - a campaign that would see the 'Steve Irwin' sail into the heart of the Great Australian Bight to document the beauty of the region in order to showcase what we would all stand to lose if we let BP drill there.

This film is the story of the campaign, that showcases one of the last big marine wilderness areas on Earth, Nature on a grand scale, and one of the big environmental wins of 2016.

Guaranteed to be a visual feast, see trailer here -> jeedarathefilm.org

Featuring Special Guest Speakers:

- Captain Wyanda Lublink - Captain M/Y Steve Irwin

- Jeff Hansen, Managing Director of Sea Shepherd Australia / Operation Jeedara Campaign Leader.
