Crucial Waters – Reporting on the World’s Oceans -Brian Skerry

Sunday, November 1, 2009 at 4 p.m.
Duxbury First Parish Church
842 Tremont St Duxbury

In this presentation Brian Skerry will take the audience around the world and into the sea by sharing tales from several of his most recent feature stories for National Geographic magazine. A major focus of Brian’s work in recent years has been to produce stories that both celebrate the sea and raise awareness about problems. In the last 50 years, 90% of the big fish in the ocean have disappeared. Over 100 million sharks are taken annually and species of whales and sea turtles are on the brink of extinction. But it is not too late and hope remains for Earth’s vital seas. In this compelling presentation, Brian presents the “State of the Oceans” and behind the scenes tales of life in the field. Environmental problems and solutions are illustrated and audiences are brought eye-to-eye with amazing marine animals and exotic locations from diving beneath arctic ice to the world’s most remote tropical coral reefs. Tickets are $10 adults and $5 for students to benefit Sustainable Duxbury.
