Sonic Sea



On Long Island we are witness to a series of beached whales and dolphins (same family as whales). This is not new.  I have previously blogged about it.
There are some newer reports and many older reports.  This week there was a report in the East Hampton Star: Four Dolphins Dead in 10 Days.
More often than not, the cause is unknown.

It tells the story of a former U.S. Navy officer who solved a tragic mystery and changed the way we understand our impact on the ocean. The film is narrated by Rachel McAdams and features Sting, in addition to the renowned ocean experts Dr. Sylvia Earle, Dr. Paul Spong, Dr. Christopher Clark, and Jean-Michel Cousteau.

Sonic Sea was produced by Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and Imaginary Forces in association with International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and Diamond Docs.

Help bring awareness of the issue to classrooms across the country. Email to gift the film and its study guide to your alma mater or your children’s school.

I’m thrilled to tell you that NRDC’s (Natural Resource Defense Council) Sonic Sea just won Emmy awards for Outstanding Nature Documentary and Outstanding Music and Sound.

What a thrill — especially because these wins will help drive even more attention to the urgent plight of whales and other marine life that depend on sound for their survival.

I hope you feel as proud as I do of this groundbreaking film that simply couldn’t have been created without the support of NRDC leadership supporters like you. And I hope you’ll join us in celebrating by watching the film for free by creating a Vimeo account and applying the promo code SONICSEE.

You can learn more about the film in the message below. Thank you!
