Sea of Shadows

Talk Tuesday 28th January 2020, 7:00PM

Executive produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, Richard Ladkani‘s riveting new documentary ventures into the front line of efforts to save the planet’s most endangered sea mammal.

When Mexican drug cartels and Chinese traffickers join forces to poach the rare totoaba fish – the “cocaine of the sea” – in the Sea of Cortez, their deadly methods threaten to destroy virtually all marine life in the region, including the most elusive and endangered whale species on earth, the vaquita porpoise.

This film follows a team of dedicated scientists, high-tech conservationists, investigative journalists and courageous undercover agents as well as the Mexican Navy as they put their lives on the line to save the last remaining vaquitas and bring the vicious international crime syndicate to justice.
