Current ProjectsANSWERING THE CALL: Our newest film in development examines the expanding role of progressive zoos in the battle against species extinction, where it matters most - in the wild. We visit two pioneering conservation parks where saving endangered animals like tigers, hippos, and great apes means protecting the entire ecosystem they depend upon - the web of life, equally vital to human survival. In considering the full extent of today's extinction crisis the film is designed to motivate viewers and zoos alike to support projects proven to foster long-term protection.

Is American democracy suffering from a wobble, and can it be fixed? Join us as we follow the money, from big industry campaign coffers to K Street and Capitol Hill, through two major American policies (farm & energy) and right back into the pockets of the same industries we began with!

EMPTY OCEANS, EMPTY NETS, examines the full extent of the global fisheries crisis and the forces that continue to push many marine fish stocks toward commercial extinction. The show also documents some of the most promising and innovative work being done to restore fisheries and protect essential fish habitat. New market initiatives are examined that give consumers a powerful vote in deciding how our oceans are fished. Commentary is provided by fishermen and by many of the world's most respected marine and fisheries scientists.
FARMING THE SEAS explores the problems and potentials of marine aquaculture, a fast-growing but controversial industry that contributes a growing share of the world's seafood. Critics of the industry believe that some kinds of aquaculture, namely shrimp and salmon farms, result in a net loss of marine resources, adding further stress to beleaguered ocean fish stocks. The documentary examines industry efforts to address these problems and efforts to grow other species of fish and shellfish that may one day take pressure off the world's oceans.
