Concerned about the proposal to open our waters to offshore oil drilling? Topher Hamblett, Director of Advocacy for Save the Bay, will join us to screen Ocean Frontiers III, a 55-minute documentary that explores the United States’ first regional ocean plans and the intersection of national security, marine commerce, and conservation. See rare underwater footage and hear from those who are leading the way to a sustainable ocean. Ocean Frontiers III is part of an award-winning film series which focuses on a new way of thinking and living in concert with the sea, in consideration of those yet to come.
