Gaviota: The End of Southern California (2017) explores one of the most threatened biodiversity hotspots in the world. Meticulously filmed over the course of five years, the film leads audiences from the ocean floor of the Santa Barbara Channel to the peaks of the jagged Santa Ynez Mountains. This wild journey crosses paths with breaching humpback whales, red-tailed hawks and elusive mountain lions. With nearly 90% of Southern California’s coast lost to development, the Gaviota coastline is the last bastion of hope for wildlife diversity.
Director Shaw Leonard will join moderator Courtney Thomas (Bren School of Environmental Science & Management, UCSB) for a post-screening discussion.
