Film and Discussion: Ocean Frontiers III

July 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Free

Ocean Frontiers III: Leaders in Ocean Stewardship & the New Blue Economy is a truly unique and hopeful ocean film that chronicles our efforts to plan for a healthy, safe, and sustainable future. It explores the intersection of national security, maritime commerce, fishing, and recreation, plus expanding industries such as offshore wind energy and aquaculture, coupled with scientific discovery. The film tells the story of how ocean planning helps us manage and balance all the uses of our ocean to keep it thriving for generations to come. Savor rare underwater footage of stunning marine life along the coast from Virginia to Maine and hear from a range of people who are leading the way to a sustainable and thriving ocean.

Join UF/IFAS Extension for a viewing of this relevant and engaging film.  The film will be followed by a Q&A with Sea Grant Agent Libby Carnahan and Urban Sustainability Agent Ramona Madhosingh-Hector about similar issues in the Tampa Bay region.

Light refreshments are generously donated from the Friends of Weedon Island (http://fowi.org). Please arrive 15 minutes early to sign in. This program is recommended for an high school and adult audience.
