BLUE PLANET II Live: Our Blue Planet
Saturday, March 3 @ 9:00 pm
Doors open at 8pm!
“It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement, the greatest source of visual beauty, the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.” – David Attenborough
Blue Planet is back, and we couldn’t be more excited about it. Gather together with us and other Blue Planet fans to celebrate this iconic series the way it was meant to be seen––with a room full of people wildly gesticulating at the screen. David Attenborough returns to the world’s oceans, documenting the rare and unusual creatures of the deep, as well as documenting the problems our oceans face.
Episode 7: In this final episode, we uncover the impact that our modern lives are having on our best-loved characters from across the series, including devoted albatross parents unwittingly feeding their chicks discarded plastic and mother dolphins potentially exposing their newborn calves to pollutants through their contaminated milk. Yet, despite these devastating impacts, there is hope. Every year, billions of herring overwinter in the icy seas off Norway, but just 50 years ago they were almost wiped out by overfishing. Today, thanks to careful regulation, they have returned, creating one of the greatest spectacles in the ocean. Hundreds of giant humpback whales and one of the greatest gatherings of orcas on the planet feast on the herring – an extraordinary story of recovery.
