Sanibel Sea School Community Events

Throughout April, Sanibel Sea School is offering a series of evening educational opportunities for the Sanibel community. Mark your calendars now so you don’t forget to take advantage of the chance to view critically acclaimed documentaries or hear a world-renowned ocean conservationist speak. We look forward to seeing you at one of our events!

Documentary Screening: The Cove

April 9th. 7:30 PM at Big Arts. $10.

Sanibel Sea School will partner with Big Arts to show you a screening of The Cove, an action-packed documentary about a team of activists who go to Japan on a secret mission to film and expose the horrific practice of killing dolphins by the thousands each year in Taiji.  After being corralled into a large cove, these dolphins are sold to dolphin parks or slaughtered and sold as meat in Japanese markets. Come watch this Sundance Audience Award-winning film and hear from Director Simon Hutchins and marine technician Greg Mooney about the work that went into producing this stunning documentary.

Guest Speaker: Carl Safina, President of The Blue Ocean Institute

April 13th. 7:30 PM at Big Arts. General $25 / Students $10.

Dr. Carl Safina, award-winning author, scientist, and co-founder of the Blue Ocean Institute will speak about “The Importance of the Oceans to Our Very Existence.”  Dr. Safina was recently named one of the 100 most notable conservationists of the 20th century by Audubon Magazine. Join us for this unique opportunity to learn about marine conservation from one of the world’s most notable experts!

Documentary Screening: The End of the Line

In celebration of Earth Day 2010, Sanibel Sea School will be screening The End of The Line – a powerful film outlining many important global fisheries issues.
