In the second and final installment of this series, filmmaker David Conover continues his trip to the COP21 Climate Change talks in Paris and a side event called Oceans Day. He is attending as a representative of Conservation Media Group. On a walk along the waterfront of the Seine, David visits the well-known French research vessel Tara on his way to Oceans Day. He learns how ocean life is being forced to move into new waters, disrupting new fisheries and the food that we depend upon while visiting coastal communities in the Mediterranean and elsewhere. Fortunately, while governments slowly gear up, people all around the globe are seizing the reins of addressing ocean and climate issues themselves. As he wraps up his trip, David challenges us to work with Grand Circle Foundation and give back to the people and places where we travel.
