More about the film
For filmmaker Rob Stewart, exploring sharks began as an underwater adventure. What it turned into was a beautiful and dangerous life journey into the balance of life on earth.
Driven by passion fed from a lifelong fascination with sharks, Stewart debunks historical stereotypes and media depictions of sharks as bloodthirsty, man-eating monsters and reveals the reality of sharks as pillars in the evolution of the seas.
Filmed in visually stunning, high definition video, Sharkwater takes you into the most shark rich waters of the world, exposing the exploitation and corruption surrounding the world’s shark populations in the marine reserves of Cocos Island, Costa Rica and the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador.
SHARKWATER is screening for free:
The Northern Territory waters are some of the last healthy tropical waters in the world. Supported by mangrove forests, extensive seagrass beds and coral reefs, the Top End coasts are home to six of the world’s seven sea turtles, the recently-identified snubfin dolphin, the vulnerable dugong and iconic sawfish.
To celebrate our tropical seas this World Oceans Day join us for a fun night of ocean-themed trivia.
How many sea turtle species found in the NT can you name?
How many songs do you know with the word “sea”?
How well do you know your undersea movie / cartoon characters?
$10 per team, up to 6 people per team (The winners receive a standup paddle board lesson voucher for each team member. Provided by Fun Supply).
Bring your friends for a whale of a time!
Territory Day, or cracker night, is a highlight on the Top End calendar. Territorians and visitors gather on Mindil Beach to watch fireworks illuminate the Timor Sea.
Last year the Darwin Aquaculture Centre collected 2 full bags of cracker pollution the morning after. This pollution would have ended up in the ocean and some would be consumed by our marine life, including sea turtles. It is estimated that half of all sea turtles have consumed plastic pollution.
This year we are gathering the troops for a post-cracker night beach clean!
Bring hats, sunscreen and water. Gloves and bags will be provided. Please join us to keep our Top End coasts (and turtles) healthy after the big celebration.
