Sonic Sea and Post-Film Talks
Oceans are a sonic symphony. Sound is essential to the survival and prosperity of marine life. But man-made ocean noise is threatening this fragile world.
Sonic Sea is about protecting life in our waters from the destructive effects of oceanic noise pollution.
Starting at 5 PM, representatives from the Cetacean Society International will be on hand before and after each screening to educate, advocate and answer questions about the marine environment!
*Stay after the 6 PM film on Monday, May 23 for a talk with Cynde McInnis the Director of Cetacean Society International. Hartford, CT. (see link to screenings at bottom of page)
Cynde has worked with Ocean Alliance, the American Cetacean Society and Whale Center of New England developing educational programs and curriculum. Cynde coordinated and participated in teacher training programs through the University of Georgia and MITS (The Museum Institute for Teaching Science). She is an adjunct professor at Salem State University. She is also the owner of The Whalemobile. Her life-sized inflatable whale, Nile, is 43 ft. long and looks like the humpback whale, Nile, a 28 year old female who spends her summers off the coast of Massachusetts. Cynde brings Nile to classrooms around the country to teach students about whales and the oceans, inspiring our next generation of ocean advocates.
