Be inspired at Turn the Tide film tour

By Abbey Cannan

A collection of inspiring and environmentally focused ocean films from independent filmmakers around the globe will be featured at The J Theatre on Wednesday 5 June at 7pm.

The vision of Turn the Tide is to inspire people to protect our oceans, re-invigorate those who are already working hard to protect it and celebrate positive ocean conservation stories.

Comprised of nine short films that shine the light on issues such as noise pollution in our oceans and its effect on whales, unique coral restoration programs and the plight of sharks in the Bahamas.

The films will introduce you to inspiring characters and incredible marine life. Travel from an African penguin colony to the nesting colony of 5200 breeding pairs of shy albatross in the south of Australia.

“Swimming in a sea of bad news about the state of our oceans it is important to remember that we can be the change we want to see in the world. The Turn the Tide Film Tour presents an island of hope in what can often seem a sea of sadness.”

Tickets are $22 for adults and $19 for concessions and can be purchased at www.thej.com.au or call 5329 6560.
