Master’s research film looks at sharks as indicator of ocean health
York University grad Vivian Guido (MES ’23) screens her new documentary, Turning Tides: Sustainability Measures for Shark Conservation, on York University’s Keele Campus on Dec. 15, from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Nat Taylor Cinema. Part of her master’s program, the film aims to increase and promote ocean literacy and environmental education, informing viewers of the many ways climate change impacts the health of oceans and communities—and giving them a new perspective on sharks in the process.
