Sea of Shadows nominated for Four Critics’ Choice Awards!

In August of 2019, vaquitas were sighted in the Sea or Cortez.

Only thirty remain, and it has been discovered that vaquita deaths are casualties in the hunt for the bladder of the marine fish totoaba to be sold on the Chinese black market. Conspiracy between Chinese and Mexican traders threatens precious remaining vaquitas and the fishing industry as well.

A joint effort by Mexico’s National Commission on Protected Areas (CONANP), Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and Museo de la Ballena y Ciencias del mar, is taking place in the Upper Gulf of California, with participation of leading marine mammal researchers from the Autonomous University of Baja California Sur (UABCS) and the USA, as well as support from the Mexican Navy.

Sea of Shadows documents the heroic campaign to protect remaining vaquitas.

The film will premiere on National Geographic on Saturday, November 9th. Be sure to tune in!
