Join us for a special documentary screening in partnership with WLRN, Public Television for South Florida.

In this next edition of LIVE@Frost Science, join us for an exclusive advance screening of Troubled Waters: A Turtle’s Tale, in partnership with WLRN Public Media. This new documentary explores the impact of human behavior on our environment—as seen through the lens of one of South Florida’s most beloved and fragile underwater creatures—the sea turtle. Featuring acclaimed actor and ocean activist Ted Danson and narrated by Peter Coyote, this one-hour film will take a critical look at the effects of global warming, water pollution and our “throw-away” plastic lifestyle on this keystone species…and inevitably ourselves.

At the center of Troubled Waters is a dedicated team of biologists, researchers and conservationists. Often struggling to remain optimistic for the future, they pour their hearts and souls into saving a species with a past as old as the dinosaur. The film will reveal the challenges confronting the largest resource of life on earth and offer solutions and actions that can be taken to help turn back the tide.

Following the screening, join the Frost Science conservation team along with producers and participants from the film for a moderated discussion and brief audience Q&A.
