Screening of "Sonic Sea" and Panel Discussion

In the darkness of the sea, whales depend on sound to mate, find food, migrate, raise their young, and defend against predators. But over the last century, human activity has transformed the oceanʼs delicate acoustic habitat, challenging the ability of whales and other marine life to prosper and, ultimately, to survive. Sonic Sea is an Emmy-nominated documentary that details the impact of industrial and military ocean noise on whales and other marine life and offers solutions and hope for a quieter ocean. 

Participate in the post-film conversation about the acoustic threats facing New York’s marine life from oil and gas exploration and development and how the public can help, with expert panelists including:

Karen Chytalo - Assistant Director of the Division of Marine Resources for the state’s Department of Environmental Conservation. where she oversees NY State’s ocean program and its marine permit office, and is engaged in marine habitat protection decisions. 

• Alison Chase - Senior Policy Analyst at the Natural Resources Defense Council’s New York office. where she helps craft and advocate for effective state and federal policies that will protect and restore ocean and coastal health. 
• Rob DiGiovanni - Founder and Chief Scientist at the Atlantic Marine Conservation Society where. he is the principal investigator for aerial surveys of sea turtles and marine mammals conducted in the mid-Atlantic region. 
• Adrienne Esposito (moderator) - Executive Director of Citizens Campaign for the Environment. which is a statewide organization that engages in research, lobbying and public education to advance solutions and empower communities to protect our air, land, and water resources.

Co-Sponsored by: NRDC, Citizens Campaign for the Environment, Group for the East End, The Nature Conservancy, Oceana, Operation SPLASH, The Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation, Huntington-Oyster Bay Audobon, & The Atlantic Marine Conservation Society
