SEA OF SHADOWS

2019 Alumni

When Mexican drug cartels and Chinese traffickers target the rare and valuable totoaba fish in the Sea of Cortez, they also decimate the population of the vaquita, the world’s smallest whale. Environmental activists, marine biologists and undercover investigators join forces on a desperate mission to expose this black-market ring and save the vaquita from almost certain extinction in this real-life environmental thriller.
