The Dawn of a New Era in Ocean Stewardship
The Ocean Frontiers films take a balanced, bipartisan approach to both the problems we face in managing our oceans and the solutions at hand. The films features on-the-ground reporting from places across the country that are at the forefront of implementing promising new approaches to ocean and coastal management in line with the spirit of the National Ocean Policy.
From industrial shippers to whale biologists, big farmers to wetland ecologists, sport and commercial fishermen to reef snorkelers to name a few – are embarking on a new course of cooperation, in defense of the ocean, coasts, and Great Lakes that sustain us.
Ocean Frontiers: The Dawn of a New Era in Ocean Stewardship shows unlikely allies coming together and crafting solutions for the good of ecosystems and industry, while neither sugarcoating the conflicts nor the sometimes difficult road to the end result. The film truly shows these groups as true partners.
Ocean Frontiers II: A New England Story for Sustaining the Sea is a captivating story of citizens coming together for the sea. This brand new film brings you face to face with those now embarking on the nation’s first multi-state ocean plan, promoting healthier economies and healthier seas across New England. A spotlight on Rhode Island reveals how the Ocean State is turning conflict into collaboration, inviting all on a more sustainable path of stewardship.
