With its motto “Igniting Passion for Nature Through Film” the 4th annual NatureTrack Film Festival (NTFF), an all-nature related film festival is ready for everyone to enjoy in a hybrid way. Taking place in person for one day (running concurrently with Los Olivos’ “Day in the Country”) and then expanding the online time for two weeks to view the award-winning films from the first three years combined with new, carefully curated, documentaries. Founder Sue Eisaguirre said, “By increasing the time online, it will allow our audience to access more films.
The nearly landlocked Sea of Okhotsk (pronounced aa·kowts·uhk) in the Russian Far East, is little known outside of Russia and seldom visited by westerners. Remaining frozen much of the year, the winter storms make it an inhospitable place, but the “Sea of Hunters” as it is translated, provides a clue to the abundance of wildlife found there. Despite historical exploitation of the wildlife, marine mammals and seabirds still thrive there in huge numbers. One small island is packed with an estimated seven million birds.
Something special happens when a river meets an ocean. Freshwater rivers and streams flow from inland to mix with salty ocean water, creating a unique habitat called an estuary. Estuaries, and the wetlands and bays that surround them, are some of the most productive areas in the world for birds, other wildlife, and humans. Presenter Andrea Jones will focus on California’s coasts and estuaries, which are part of the Pacific Flyway–the migratory bird highway stretching from the Arctic to Patagonia, supporting nearly a billion birds.
This year’s theme is:
“The ultimate measure of a person is not where they stand in moments of comfort and convenience, but where they stand at times of challenge and controversy”
