PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. – A group of 12 at Pace University will premiere a new documentary on May 7 about their time filming sea turtles in Mexico.
“¡Viva la Tortuga! Meshing Conservation and Culture in Magdalena Bay” is “the latest addition to a series of prize-winning short documentaries on sustainable use of the world’s living resources,” according to the school. The students will screen the film and host a panel discussion at 4 p.m. in the Willcox Auditorium at the Pleasantville campus.
PaceBaja, the group, spent their Spring Break in Magdalena Bay on Mexico's Baja peninsula, filming communities who once poached sea turtles and much of the region's natural resources and are working to build a sustainable economic model around conservation and tourism.
The mix of graduate and undergraduate students were lead by Professor Maria Luskay.
