THE GREAT WHALE – 12 MINUTES
The Great Whale tells the story of Michael Fishbach, a dedicated and eccentric whale conservationist trying to save the future of the largest mammal ever to exist on earth, the blue whale. With an estimated 10,000 left in our oceans, Michael is lobbying shipping companies and governments to amend ship lanes that have proven to be deadly to the blue whales – making it impossible for this critically endangered species to survive.
TIPPING POINT – 11 MINUTES
Three young adventures take a journey that would test their mental, physical, and emotional capabilities to the limit. In March 2018 they sailed out of South Africa for the sub-Antarctic Kerguelen Islands. Also known as the Desolation Islands, they are some of the most isolated islands on the planet. Ten days out of Kerguelen, their worst became a reality.
THE ARMSTRONGS – 8 MINUTES
Ian Armstrong is a world-renowned big wave surfer. His lifestyle is somewhat out of the norm, this South African and his family show us a different way to live. Their tight bond, and love of the ocean, set the Armstrong’s apart from any family you have ever seen or heard of.
CRUISE SHIPS IN MONTEREY BAY – 10 MINUTES
A group of environmental activists began organizing against the visitation of cruise ships in the Monterey Bay, where many locals are worried an accident might occur that would have major implications for the health of the NATIONAL MARINE SANCTUARY. The multi-billion dollar international industry of cruise ships has exhibited a poor track record for decades on environmental law compliance – often pumping out contaminated waters and dumping trash in restricted ocean spaces. The industry also represents an enormous source of fossil fuel consumption and emissions, which activists feel is out of touch with the realities of environmental conservation and protection.
UNTRASHING DJULPAN – 25 MINUTES
With marine plastic pollution having devastating consequences on oceans and coastlines around the world, Sea Shepherd Australia is shining a light on how this increasing environmental issue is affecting mainland Australia.
115 FEET OF FREEDOM – 14 MINUTES
In a typical male dominated industry, three-time kite surfing world champion Jalou Langeree wanted to prove that woman can do it just as well, if not better, and set out to do exactly that.
