'Blue Serengeti' Screening & Talk with David McGuire, Shark Stewards

“Right off our California shores we have one of the ocean’s most stunning congregations of predators and prey - wilderness like this is vital to the ocean’s health,” said Dr. Sal Jorgensen, a Senior Research Scientist at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. “We almost lost this once, when seals, sea lions, whales and other species were hunted to near extinction. More than ever we need bold efforts to conserve wide-ranging marine species throughout their range.”

Director Bob Nixon captures all of this action through the eyes of scientists, autonomous vehicles and the sharks themselves.The team the vehicles and Non-invasive Camera Tags, which are attached directly to humpback whales, elephant seals, and white sharks, and allow the research team to view and recreate the movement and behaviors of Monterey’s seasonal visitors.

Blue Serengeti takes the viewer on a journey that shows unprecedented, never-before-seen underwater views from the California National Marine Sanctuaries, to find out why the greatest migration on earth comes here, to the waters off Monterey, California. [42 minutes]
