Giving a voice to the preservation of ocean life

June 8, 2011

It has long been Kate’s life’s goal to educate the public at large about the state of the world’s oceans today. Most people know very little about where their tuna fish sandwiches and sushi platters come from; in the future, Kate hopes to create documentary films that will fill these gaps in knowledge, and excite people to help with problems like over-fishing and the degradation of the seas.

This short music video, created while at Duke University where Kate studied Marine Biology, Marine Conservation, Documentary Film and Photography, gives us a glimpse of what she hopes to accomplish:

“Fix” the Ocean, Music Video from Kate Findlay-Shirras on Vimeo.
The video is comprised of short clips from all the top marine conservation documentaries (such as “The Cove,” and “The End of the Line”), and she hopes it inspires you to care about the issues plaguing an environment that cannot help itself.
