Fall in love with the ocean all over again. Watch our exclusive, one time showing of “Wild Pacific Rescue” as Dr. Marty Haulena, head veterinarian of the Vancouver BC Aquarium, and his dedicated team rescue animals in the wild that have been harmed by human actions, especially plastic pollution.
Plastic is a key driver of climate change. If plastic use was a country, it would be the 5th largest emitter of greenhouse gas in the world. Many of those emissions are methane, which is over 80 times more climate warming than CO2. Plastic has badly damaged the ocean and the creatures in it.
Come be inspired by the people on the frontlines doing what they can to protect these endangered animals. Join our panel of distinguished guests for a discussion after the movie to hear about the effects of plastic in the Salish Sea and how you can help.
