Captains For Clean Water, the Florida-based advocacy group founded to address the mismanagement that has led to the state’s water crisis, have teamed with Backbone Media to present a short film on conversation fights in its home state, as well as in Alaska.
The film, Everyone In Between, addresses a viable solution — the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan — that the group believes will protect the boating mecca from a lifetime of toxic algae-blooms, fish kills, habitat degradation, red tides and a threatened drinking water supply.
It also delves into Alaska’s Pebble Mine Project. A slew of environmental advocacy groups, as well as commercial and recreational fishermen, vehemently oppose the mine because of its potential impact on the salmon fishery; proponents, however, say it will bring jobs to the region.
“At its core, the film is a rallying cry from the outdoor industry that — from the Everglades to Bristol Bay and beyond—everyone in between must stand united in the fight to protect the unique, wild places we value most,” Captains For Clean Water said in a statement. “[The film] will generate awareness for both issues, provide education and provoke public engagement and advocacy backed by the entire outdoor industry.”
Starting tomorrow, the film can be viewed here.
