Happy New Year!
Our warmest wishes to each and every one of you for a wonderful 2015! Let us all put our hearts, minds and bodies into helping our oceans thrive in the New Year and beyond!
Thank you for your involvement with Ocean Frontiers in 2014. Last year the films screened more than 500 times in 30 states and 17 countries—in theaters, libraries, conferences, film festivals, churches, high schools, universities, aquariums, nature centers and in the offices of government officials and decision-makers. PBS aired Ocean Frontiers: The Dawn of a New Era in Ocean Stewardship for much of the spring and summer to over 80% of the media markets in the US. What a busy year!
