Critic Reviews

“Documentaries like Sea of Life connect people to nature and allow them to understand that the oceans are in peril. Sarah-Louise Ruder, a master’s student in the Faculty of Environment at the University of Waterloo, attended the screening and agrees with this. “The film did a great job of tying together global complex problems from waste, to ocean acidification, to poaching and overfishing,” Ruder said. Julia Barnes and others working for Sea Sheperd believe that people can understand it, they can care about it and they can fight for the change that the world needs because ultimately, politicians do not enact the needed change — passionate people do. Our generation is the one that will suffer for what governments have not been doing and are not doing today. “Action is not an option it is a necessity; let the size of the problem motivate you,” Barnes said.” – Charlotte Hings.
