Celebrate World Ocean Day!  (From Defenders of Wildlife)


Join Us: Free screening of ENTANGLED and discussion with the film’s director

You’re invited to join Defenders for a free movie screening about the crisis facing North Atlantic right whales, one of the world’s most endangered whales!

ENTANGLED is an award-winning film about how climate change has accelerated a conflict between endangered right whales, North America’s most valuable fishery, and the federal agency mandated to protect both. With deadly threats like ship strikes and entanglement in fishing gear jeopardizing the survival of this species, the race is on to protect these whales from extinction. For many years, Defenders has played a central role in litigation and advocacy to protect the right whale from these threats.

Before we begin, Director David Abel, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist for the Boston Globe, will introduce this film. Following the screening and a 5-minute break, Abel will join Defenders Senior Attorney Jane Davenport for a powerful discussion that you won’t want to miss.
