The Pennsylvania/Delaware chapter is excited to participate in the 6th annual Films Across Borders film festival hosted by American University.
Join us on Friday, October 23 at 12:00 noon for a screening of the short documentary "Love Flows", part of our observance of October 24's World Fish Migration Day, an annual global celebration to create awareness on the importance of free flowing rivers and migratory fish.
A panel discussion will follow the screening featuring TNC’s Senior Conservation Scientist Josh Royte, TNC PA/DE’s Conservation Manager Mari-Beth DeLucia and Aquatic Habitat Specialist Lyndon DeSalvo, talking about TNC’s freshwater work to benefit migratory freshwater fish both globally and locally.
For millennia, we have relied on rivers as a source of food, recreation and energy. Unfortunately, many of these natural, free-flowing rivers have deteriorated as generations pass. "Love Flows" brings to life the challenges that voiceless rivers and fishes face against threats, but more importantly, it focuses on what we are doing to help improve the situation.
The Films Across Borders film festival is produced by American University in partnership with embassies, arts institutions, and environmental groups like TNC.
