Short film on the recent discovery of a Hawksbill aggregation in the Sea of Cortez, at one small estuary in San Jose Island. Yet a new discovery for science, local fisherman already knew about the presence of careyes in the estuary. They stopped fishing sea turtles long ago, and established a fishery refuge in the estuary. Since then hawksbills came back in important numbers, staying longer than expected. A surprise that has aroused more questions than answered, opening a new path that scientists will follow to pursue better-informed conservation strategies for this endangered species.
The WCFF mission is to inform, engage and inspire wildlife conservation through the power of film.
The 9th annual WCFF anniversary includes, ten days of over 100 documentary films with panel discussion, networking, receptions, field trips and more. Films will represent over 40 nations as in previous years, with international filmmakers in attendance.
