Collapse of the Oceans

Tuesday, April 17, 2018
12:15pm – 2:00pm

Avery Point Campus
Auditorium - Student Center

Join us to view Collapse of the Oceans and then discuss the film and its relevance to our world today, all while enjoying a light lunch of local, sustainable seafood. In the film, host Joshua Jackson investigates the devastating impacts of ocean warming on coral reefs and looks at the predicted impact on ocean ecosystems, and on our own food supply, of ocean acidification. He travels from the Great Barrier Reef in Australia to the Philippines, whose citizens rely heavily on healthy reefs for food and other ocean products and for protection from storms. He finds that fishermen are no longer able to sustain their families because of the increasing scarcity of fish.
