The Oyster Farmer + New Land

The Oyster Farmer: When oyster larvae in the Whiskey Creek Shellfish Hatchery began dying en masse, hatchery manager Alan Barton sought clues to the underlying cause. After partnering with marine scientist Burke Hales and studying local ocean chemistry, they were able to identify the root cause – ocean acidification – and adjust their farming practices to save oyster production. Directed by Kika Tuff. Produced by Emily Cloyd and Elana Kimbrell. Sponsored by Clearwater Credit Union.

New Land: Five years ago a hugely ambitious project began its gradual journey towards completion. The construction of a unique archipelago started, deliberately fashioned for the benefit of nature. This unique blue chip wildlife film shows the development of the islands and how nature starts to take over from the moment the first land appears. Now already over 650 plant and animal species are found on the islands and the abundance of birdlife is beyond believe. This film explores how the map of The Netherlands was changed to successfully increase biodiversity. This is a first for the world! Directed and Produced by Cees van Kempen. Sponsored by Backcountry Hunters & Anglers.
Duration: 57 min
