Sunday@4: Turning the Tide

Our oceans are changing and so is our relationship with them. Join us on a journey above and below the ocean’s surface with views through the lens of two National Geographic photographers: Cristina Mittermeier and Paul Nicklen. Cristina will be our featured speaker.

Through first-hand experiences with indigenous cultures around the world, Cristina Mittermeier demonstrates the undeniable call for action around climate change and the impact it is having not only on our world’s oceans but on the people and wildlife who rely on the sea for survival.

Having spent extensive time with the Gitga’at Nation in British Columbia, on the front lines of their fight to protect sacred headwaters in the Great Bear Rainforest, Cristina Mittermeier is in a unique position to blend science with compassion and knowledge with empathy.  Her experience in British Columbia extends to the Salish Sea, unparalleled in biological diversity and now at a crossroad between industrial degradation and sustainable industry. Cristina will demonstrate that a plan for the ocean means more than a plan the future, it’s a plan that our lives depend on.

    Hi, I was wanting to attend this “Turning the Tides” event with C. Mittermeier. Am I reading this correctly that the event is full? If possible, I would like to RSVP for 2 people please. Thanks

      So sorry, Karen, but we are literally over-subscribed. Many people will be standing and we really cannot accommodate any more.
