Sea of Shadows

The award-winning documentary “Sea of Shadows” is coming to Newport on Saturday, Nov. 2, with free tickets now available courtesy of the Oregon Chapter of the American Cetacean Society.

This documentary chronicles the fight to save the vaquita porpoise from extinction. In Mexico’s Sea of Cortez, a group of scientists, high-tech activists, investigative journalists and undercover agents attempt to rescue the most endangered and elusive whale on Earth while battling drug cartels and traffickers whose destructive poaching methods are threatening the region’s marine life. Less than a dozen vaquitas remain and their only habitat is the Sea of Cortez.

The Nov. 2 screening will start at 10 am at Newport Public Library, 35 NW Nye Street. The film is rated PG-13.
