This past week, Beneath the Waves headed to sunny San Diego! The beautiful Living Coast Discovery Center opened it’s doors and aquariums to film goers of all ages. With films ranging in topic from shark conservation to plastic pollution, guests played witness to a wide variety of ocean themes. During intermission, everyone got up close and personal with some of the oceans most majestic creatures getting to feed sharks, hang out with sea turtles, and interact with the many animals that call the Discovery Center home. We proceeded the festival with a panel of seven local scientists from San Diego State University and Scripps Institution of Oceanography. This lead to an engaging conversation as we answered brilliant questions about both local and global ocean issues. All in all a great time was had by all! Check out our fun adventures below!
