Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary Continues Environmental Film Series Through March

WELLFLEET – The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary is hosting the “Sea Change” Environmental film and discussion series.

Now in its 7th year, the event series is co-sponsored by the Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater, with all films screened at the theater.

On Saturday, March 16th from 7:00 through 9:00 p.m., watch the film “The Last Bay Scallop”.

Like those in many Cape and Island communities, the bay scallop fishery on Nantucket – the last commercial one on the east coast – is at risk of depletion.

In this film, Nantucket resident John Stanton looks at the remaining scallop fishermen in his town, how they view the decline in scallop abundance and what Nantucket is trying to do to protect its dwindling fishery.

On Saturday, April 20th from 7:00 p.m. through 9:00 p.m., attendees can watch the screening of “Ocean Cities”.

Coastal communities have been warned – our changing climate will accelerate sea level rise and produce more frequent storms, damaging floods and erosion.

The film looks at mitigation projects some major cities already have implemented and what additional work and public policy questions they may have to confront.

Admission is $12 per person. To reserve seats, call the WHAT Box Office at 508-349-9428.
