INTRODUCING SPIRAL PACIFIC :
A NON-PROFIT INSTITUTE DEDICATED TO MARINE EGO SYSTEM CONSERVATION
Spiral Pacific is a team of scientists, educators and film professionals working together to foster conservation of the marine ecosystems of the Pacific Ocean. Our mission explores the intertwined ecosystems around this vast ocean basin and several human-caused stressors that contribute to: overfishing, ocean acidification, introduction of invasive species and the marine debris issue. In our research we highlight solutions enacted by the local communities around the Pacific Rim to address the decline in the overall health of the marine environment thus providing a base-line as to how these solutions can be stepped up globally. Additionally, these solutions are incorporated to create unique visual STEM based curricula. Source material stimulates critical thinking and encourages student participate into the vital field of math, science and technology. Research highlights the next generation of high paying jobs with require education in these fields. The ultimate goal is to educate and equip a new inclusive generation of ocean stewards.
Spiral Pacific is an independent trans media non-profit corporation generating content that lives across multiple formats: print, television, video web assets and for scientific research studies. Our unique projects are gaining momentum because our foundation is the spirit of cooperation for education. Footage and research are shared freely with collaborating scientists, artists, teachers and students. Stunning imagery is paired with science to bring our actions to light in hopes of nudging us toward change. We are currently in production on a two-part documentary exploring ocean ecosystem connectivity filmed in 4K (Ultra HD.) Our travels will take us to nine Northern Pacific Rim locations to document the challenges facing the local human and marine life populations as they struggle to survive and adapt in an increasing hostile environment.
