Sonic Sea Screening Announced

Ecología y Conservación de Ballenas (ECOBAC), a local nonprofit dedicated to the research, protection and conservation of humpback whales in Banderas Bay, has just announced upcoming screenings of Sonic Sea, a 60-minute documentary about the devastating impact of industrial and military ocean noise on whales and other marine life. The screenings will take place on December 21 at the Holly Beach (Hotel Zone), December 28 at Los Arcos on the Malecon, and January 3 on Los Muertos Beach. All screenings will begin at 7:30 pm.

The film begins with a mystery: the unexplained stranding and mass mortality of several species of whales in the Bahamas in March 2000. As the mystery unfolds, the film explores the critical role of sound in the sea, and the sudden, dramatic changes human activity is inflicting on the ocean’s delicate acoustic habitat—changes that threaten the ability of whales and other marine animals to prosper, to function, and ultimately, to survive.

Sonic Sea features several charismatic scientists, including Ken Balcomb, the former Navy pilot and acoustics expert who proved to the world that naval sonar is killing whales, as well as the musician and environmental activist, Sting, whose moving interview connects the sonic world of marine life with our sonic world on land. The film offers solutions (and, by extension, hope) for a quieter ocean, and underscores that the ocean’s destiny is inextricably bound with our own.

The documentary has been awarded over 20 Laurels in different film festivals, and recently received the 2016 Science of Life Award from Science Media Awards at Harvard University.

"Since we started the company we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles, a publication that is considered ‘Puerto Vallarta’s Magazine’ by the quality of its images, content and staff, unique characteristics that encouraged us to say: ‘We have to be in Vallarta Lifestyles’. We know that this magazine is a reference for the target market that we are looking for and we know that being there gives us prestige.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles is a platform that allows us to reach the kind of market that we’re looking for. I think that, since its beginnings, 30 years ago, it has been the best publication of the destination. There’s no doubt that part of our success is for the advertising that we have in the magazine.”
Claire Guarniere

“One of the biggest benefits of advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles is that a lot of readers keep it as a bible. People have arrived to our gallery looking for the pieces that are in the advertisements published 5 or 6 years ago, and that’s really valuable for us. Besides being an excellent magazine where is possible to find the newest in the destination, it is a publication dedicated to the public we want to reach and keep.”
