Questo evento e di sostegno per la Giornata Mondiale degli Oceani, - non importa dove si vive - per contribuire a espandere la portata e l'impatto della Giornata Mondiale degli Oceani l'8 giugno e per tutto l'anno. 

Dopo anni di ricerche, viaggi e riprese, è uscito nelle sale cinematografiche del mondo il film documentario sulla plastica che inquina gli oceani "A Plastic Ocean", prodotto dalla rete internazionale di fondazioni “Plastic Oceans”: nel lavoro, che racconta gli studi scientifici sull’inquinamento degli oceani portati avanti da ricercatori dei cinque continenti, una parte è dedicata al progetto “Plastc Busters” dell’Università di Siena.
, dedicato allo studio e alla lotta all’inquinamento da microplastiche nel mar Mediterraneo.
”. Proprio durante il campionamento sulle balene, la troupe di “Plastic Oceans”, insieme alla pluri campionessa mondiale di apnea Tanya Streeter ha girato splendide immagini nei mari della Sardegna, in quel “santuario” dei cetacei che è una delle zone a più alta protezione del Mediterraneo, purtroppo in pericolo perché pesantemente minacciato, oltre che dagli altri inquinanti, da ingenti quantità di plastica.
La troupe di giornalisti che ha realizzato il documentario proviene in larga parte dalle BBC ed è capitanata da Jo Ruxton, specializzata nei documentari naturalistici e nelle riprese sottomarine, produttrice anche di “The Blue Planet”. 
La rete non profit “Plastic Oceans”, sostenuta a livello globale da numerose organizzazioni ambientaliste, tra cui il WWF, Greenpeace, Blue Ocean, Sea Shepherd e molte altre, sta realizzando una imponente campagna di comunicazione per documentare la “catastrofe globale dell’inquinamento provocato dalla plastica”, distribuendo il film nel mondo e accompagnandolo con azioni di divulgazione ed educazione.

"A Plastic Ocean" Documentary Screening: Sea Shepherd Toronto

Join Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (Toronto Chapter) for the Toronto Premiere of 'A Plastic Ocean' on World Oceans Day. 

This high-end documentary feature film was made by the Plastic Oceans Foundation, a global network of independent not-for-profit and charitable organisations united in their aims to change the way we deal with plastic waste by challenging society's perception that this indestructible substance can be treated as 'disposable'. They seek to change the world's attitude to plastic within one generation.

Filmed in 20 locations around the world, "A Plastic Ocean" provides a global perspective on the issue of plastic waste in our oceans and examines the extent of the problem. Most importantly, the documentary shows us the ways that we can turn it around not just through knowledge and behavioural changes but with amazing new technology. It has the potential to benefit our health and that of our children, our environment and our seas.

Sea Shepherd merchandise will be available for purchase throughout the evening. 

Purchase your tickets today!


6:00: Doors open
6:45 - 8:30: "A Plastic Ocean" Screening (104 mins)
8:30 - 9:00: Q&A with guest speaker Chelsea Rochman, Assistant Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at University of Toronto. 

One of Professor Rochman's research objectives is "to determine and quantify the sources and sinks of plastic debris in freshwater and marine habitats. Current and ongoing projects include measuring the sources and sinks of microplastic into urban watersheds across North America, examining plastic as a source of chemicals to aquatic habitats and quantifying plastic and associated chemical contaminants in wildlife (e.g., birds and fish), including fish and shellfish sold directly for human consumption."

Harmony Gold Cinema, 7655 W. Sunset Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90046, United States
"JEEDARA" - the Film - USA Premier

Join us this World Oceans Day for the exclusive USA Premiere screening of "Jeedara the Film" documenting our fight to keep oil giants out of the Great Australian Bight.


In 2010 BP was responsible for the worlds largest oil spill in the Gulf Of Mexico. Over several months, the rig spewed nearly 5 million barrels of oil into the ocean, killing millions of animals and destroying the surrounding environment.

Less than a year later, the Australian Government signed papers allowing BP to come to Australia and drill in deeper and rougher seas.

In 2016 The Great Australian Bight Alliance announced the launch of 'Operation Jeedara' - a campaign that would see the 'Steve Irwin' sail into the heart of the Great Australian Bight to document the beauty of the region in order to showcase what we would all stand to lose if we let BP drill there.

This film is the story of the campaign, that showcases one of the last big marine wilderness areas on Earth, Nature on a grand scale, and one of the big environmental wins of 2016.

Guaranteed to be a visual feast, see trailer here -> jeedarathefilm.org

Featuring Special Guest Speakers:

- Captain Wyanda Lublink - Captain M/Y Steve Irwin

- Jeff Hansen, Managing Director of Sea Shepherd Australia / Operation Jeedara Campaign Leader.

“Beach and Marine Environment Protection Club” (BMEPC)

Sustainability for Ocean Protection

Hotels & Resorts situated on the Coastal belt of South India to form a club “Beach and Marine Environment Protection Club” (BMEPC) to commit to actions to “Protect the Ocean & Marine life” so it can continue to sustain us all into the future for developing strategies to act on long term solutions to the impact that Plastic, rubbish, and disposal of raw sewage has to be stopped and keep the beaches clean through continuous process, to educate the staffs on the dangers of Marine Pollution and Global Warming and climate change ,causing marked shifts in ocean environments and ecosystems.

The Aim of this club is to educate the citizen about the waste disposable should be carefully placed in the appropriate place so that it doesn’t end up fouling our oceans, rivers and lakes. We cannot take our marine environment for granted, nor treat it carelessly.

Hotels & Resorts situated on the Coastal belt of South India will form an agenda by partnering to reduce marine debris by constant routine beach & under water cleaning in association with agencies experts in underwater diving and Marine studies to have a close watch on keeping the Marine life safe from debris & pollution.

Planning to launch the Club on the 8th June 2017 on the World Oceans day.

There will be approximately 40 hotels coming in the belt but we will rope in backwater resorts also.

Being a hotelier in beach front of Kovalam, I felt like myself there are many fellow hoteliers who are there along the coastal belt. We all can start the mission and take up to entire Indian Coastal belt.

Looking forward for your support & co operation..

Thanks & regards

Raja Gopaal Iyer

3rd Blue Planet Symposium
conference center of NOAA’s Center for Weather and Climate Prediction
3rd Blue Planet Symposium

The 3rd Blue Planet Symposium will serve as a forum for discussion of societal information needs resulting from the important role the oceans play in Earth's life-support system and the challenge of minimizing the impacts of human activities on the oceans while utilizing the resources of the oceans to meet our needs. The symposium will also be a platform for the participating communities to exchange information on their activities and identify potential pilot and prototype projects for Blue Planet to focus on in the coming years. The Symposium will address four subthemes:

1. The changing oceans

Climate change involves major changes in the oceans, including changes in ocean circulation and dynamic sea surface topography, a changing role in the global climate system, sea level rise, and a potentially ice-free Arctic ocean. It is important to understand the current changes and their potential future developments and impacts on the Earth's life-support system from local to global scales.

2. Threats from pollution, warming and acidification

The health of marine ecosystems and their productivity are exposed to threats from pollution, the warming of the oceans, and an increasing acidification. The current and future impacts of these threats on the marine biosphere and beyond, including the impacts on human societies, need to be understood, monitored, and ways to limit the threats need to be developed.

3. Processes and life at the Interfaces with the oceans

The oceans are integrated in the global system of systems with many interdependencies between them and the land and the atmosphere. There are many potential cascading effects, leading from disturbances and changes in one system to large impacts on the other systems. Therefore, understanding the processes at the interfaces between oceans, land and atmosphere is crucial in order to take interdependencies into consideration and avoid as far as possible cascading effects.

4. Sustainable use of ocean resources

Human well-being depends on a wide range of ocean resources and there are numerous economic activities based on using the oceans in various ways. The changing oceans will impact humanity's use of the oceans and provide new opportunities that need careful consideration. We need to take into account the impacts of these activities on the oceans and develop approaches that meet our needs while safeguarding the functioning of the oceans in the Earth’s life-support system.

Anticipated Outcomes

The symposium is expected to result in tenable outcomes relevant to the providers and users of ocean and coastal observation information. Specifically, it is expected that:
â—¾Linkages with new communities and users will be developed.
â—¾Potential pilot and prototype projects for Blue Planet will be identified; and
â—¾Collaborations across groups and disciplines will be strengthened.
