“Facing Climate Change: Oyster Farmers” by Benjamin Drummond and Sara Steele

Facing Climate Change: Oyster Farmers from Benjamin Drummond + Sara Steele on Vimeo.

“Over the past 250 years, the world’s oceans have absorbed about 25 percent of the carbon dioxide that humans have put into the air by burning fossil fuels. Carbon dioxide lowers the pH of oceans, turning waters more acidic. The Northwest is home to some of the most corrosive waters on earth… Under rising emissions scenarios, ocean acidity may increase 100 to 150 percent by the end of the century. In response, farmers are using new technologies to monitor the acidity levels of hatchery waters. Young scientists are devoting their careers to understanding risk and resilience.”

“It’s 2013 and, for large mammals around North America (esepecially the lower 48), we typically think we kind of know what’s going on and here we have hundreds of animals migrating 150 miles across public and private lands, right underneath our noses, and we didn’t even know about it.” – Hall Sawyer, Research Biologist

“It’s a fearless animal and it’s a tenacious animal.” – Jeff Copeland, Wolverine Researcher

“Produced by Conservation Media for The Wolverine Foundation, this short film explores one of the most fascinating and least understood animals on the planet. This small, rare, and elusive creature may be able to kill a moose or fend a grizzly off a kill, but it faces serious threats such as climate change for which it is no match.” – Description on Vimeo
