March 2019 Conservation Icons: Joel Reynolds, Natural Resources Defense Council–Defending the Sea
Lindsay Wildlife’s Conservation Icons is bringing Joel Reynolds, of the Natural Resources Defense Council to Walnut Creek as a premiere speaker for the second annual Conservation Icons series to talk about Defending the Sea.
Join Reynolds as he talks about the global movement to curb man-made ocean noise. Whales dolphins, fish and other marine life are threatened by the endless industrial noise from shipping, seismic exploration and naval sonar. These animals can not get away from this barrage of noise and it’s harming and even killing whales, dolphins and other creatures in water bodies all around the world.
From the Atlantic to the Pacific to the wild Arctic, this endless barrage of noise impairs the ability of our planet’s vulnerable marine life to communicate, find food, navigate and breed. Reynolds is the producer of the Emmy-award winning documentary Sonic Sea. Narrated by the Oscar-nominated actress Rachel McAdams, the documentary dives into the need to protect life in our waters from the destructive effects of oceanic noise pollution.
Since 1980, Reynolds has specialized in complex law-reform litigation, arguing cases on behalf of environmental and community groups at all levels of the federal courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court.
Reynolds will be speaking at the Lesher Center for the Arts at 6 p.m. on Saturday, March 23, 2019. He will discuss his life’s work and what we can all do to take a stand against ocean noise.
Reynolds is just one of six awe-inspiring speakers that are part of the 2018-19 Conservation Icons series that aims to educate, entertain and inspire change!
