From over-fishing, to pollution, to climate change, the world's oceans are under siege. But there's reason for hope. "SAVING THE OCEAN," a new PBS series hosted by renowned marine biologist and best-selling author Carl Safina, takes viewers around the globe to spotlight innovations and successes in marine conservation.
Saving the Ocean: Shark Reef & The Sacred Island
TAKES A GOOD-NEWS APPROACH TO THREATS FACING MARINE ENVIRONMENTS
Available on DVD from PBS Distribution June 28th
Arlington, Va. – June 8, 2011 – PBS Distribution today announced it is releasing Saving the Ocean: Shark Reef & The Sacred Island on DVD. From over-fishing, to pollution, to climate change, the world's oceans are under siege. But there's reason for hope. "SAVING THE OCEAN," a new PBS series hosted by renowned marine biologist and best-selling author Carl Safina, takes viewers around the globe to spotlight innovations and successes in marine conservation. This DVD has a suggested retail price of $24.99 and will be available on June 28, 2011. The program has a running time of 60 minutes.
This DVD contains two episodes from this series – Shark Reef and The Sacred Island.
Around the world, sharks are in peril. The huge global trade in shark fins – to make shark fin soup – is killing tens of millions of sharks annually and driving some species toward extinction. But innovative conservation efforts to protect sharks and change consumer tastes offer cause for hope. Safina travels to Glover's Reef Marine Reserve in Belize, where targeted regulations on fishing are helping sharks – and other fish – thrive. Safina joins researchers as they catch, tag, release and track sharks in this spectacular coral atoll. Then he looks at anti-shark fin soup campaigns that are beginning to change consumer tastes in Hong Kong.
The Sacred Island
Safina travels to the island of Pemba – part of Zanzibar in East Africa – to learn about one of the world's most unusual conservation stories. Facing the loss of their pristine reefs and lagoons to a potential resort development, Pemba's villages won control of their vital fishing grounds thanks to a combination of activism, education, and regulation. Safina heads out on the water with local fishermen practicing low-impact techniques and meets the influential imams whose sermons on this Muslim island stress Koranic principles of environmental stewardship. Safina believes this new "eco-Islam" could be a key to ocean conservation in large parts of the world.
