Nigerians Fight to Protect the World's Most Trafficked Mammal
Katie Schuler, Coral & Oak Studios, National Geographic | 2019 | 10 min
Pangolins are believed to be the most trafficked mammals in the world. As the four Asian species of pangolins have dwindled, poachers are increasingly turning to the African species to supply the trade. In this short film, meet the bold Nigerians who are fighting to protect this gentle and vulnerable creature

Sea of Shadows
Richard Ladkani, Wolfgang Knoepfler, Walter Koehle | 2019 | 104 min
When Mexican drug cartels and Chinese traffickers join forces to poach the rare totoaba fish in the Sea of Cortez, their methods threaten to destroy all marine life in the region, including the most elusive and endangered whale species on Earth, the Vaquita Porpoise. Sea of Shadows follows a team of dedicated scientists, high-tech conservationists, investigative journalists, and undercover agents as they risk their lives to save the last remaining vaquitas and bring the international crime syndicate to justice.

Session sponsored by Alison Jones-Pomatto & Alan Pomatto
