Sea Shepherd Marine Debris Campaign are excited to announce that Sea Shepherd Byron Bay will be hosting the Premiere screening of the full-length feature documentary "A PLASTIC OCEAN". An award-winning film about the impact of plastic on our oceans. Described by Sir David Attenborough as “one of the most important films of our time"

In A Plastic Ocean, an international team of adventurers, researchers, and Ocean ambassadors go on a mission around the globe to uncover the shocking truth about what is truly lurking
beneath the surface of our seemingly pristine Ocean.
It brings to light the consequences of our global disposable lifestyle and shows never-before-seen images of marine life, plastic pollution, and its ultimate consequences for not only human health but our planet.

Special Guest performance by Garrett Kato.
A Canadian singer/songwriter who now proudly calls Byron Bay home will entertain you with an acoustic session.

  • I'd like to go with you Gracie but I can't leave the dog at home it screams.
  • The corner stone of Sea Shepherd Australia's Marine Debris Campaign is education. We firmly believe that through education we can assist people to make informed decisions that will benefit our oceans, marine life and planet. This week our Marine Debris Campaign Coordinator Liza Dicks was a guest on The Daily Edition were they highlighted and discussed the extent and consequences of plastic pollution for our seas, marine-life and humankind.

  • Kimberley will be at answering your questions at the screening after the film. We asked why she became a Sea Shepherd Marine Debris volunteer and this was her reply! "Through my journeys I became increasingly aware of the dire situation in which Mother Nature is being placed by humans. I’ve picked up rubbish from Everest Base Camp in Tibet and watched in horror as locals discarded basket-loads of waste into the world’s most sacred waterway – the Ganges River – hour afterhour. I joined Sea Shepherd almost two years ago, and have since been involved with the Marine Debris Australia campaign in Brisbane and surrounds, ApexHarmony Shark Defence Campaign, and on Operation Henkaku in Japan as a CoveGuardian, defending the dolphins in Taiji earlier this year. During the day, I am an avid defender of animals and habitats worldwide and believe that all social change starts from the passion of individuals. Book you tickets now for this powerful documentary!

  • "A PLASTIC OCEAN begins when journalist Craig Leeson, searching for the elusive blue whale, discovers plastic waste in what should be remote, pristine ocean. In this adventure documentary, Leeson teams up with free diver Tanya Streeter, and an international team of scientists and researchers, to explore the fragile state of our oceans, uncover alarming truths about plastic pollution, and reveal working solutions that can be put into immediate effect. Tanya stands amongst the trash on the remote island of Tvualu in the Pacific Ocean miles from industry and any big city. Here the Island is being flooded by imported plastics which are discarded into open pits plus plastic that is in the ocean being tossed back onto the beaches, creating havoc for sea birds marine life and human health!

  • Here is the trailer for the much anticipated film by Plastic Oceans. 'A plastic Ocean' produced by Jo Ruxton brings together scientists, conservationists and even world renowned champion freediver Tanya Streeter together on an expedition of four-years all around the globe to explore the issue of plastics in our oceans. The film shows us the devastating effects that plastic has on marine ecosystems and human health, including endocrine disruption in humans. 'A Plastic Ocean' offers some solutions to this widespread problem which is deeply effecting every ecosystem on this precious planet. Sea Shepherd Marine Debris Campaign Australia is committed to removing harmful plastic pollution and other non natural materials from the marine ecosystem including coastlines and waterways. We are committed to source reduction and to educate the public on the best re-usable options available so that together we can all start to reduce our plastic foot print.
