The story of the Last Ocean Campaign

Documentary filmmaker Peter Young, director and producer of The Last Ocean, will share his insights and experiences from the Last Ocean campaign, a movement that grew from a passionate few into an international environmental campaign that helped create the world’s largest Marine Protected Area in the Ross Sea, Antarctica.

Peter will talk about the importance of the film, how it was financed, produced and distributed to help create significant change.
