This is a truly proud moment for us - all of us, who helped bring FW to life and to tell the story of the Southern Residents and chinook salmon. We are greatly honored and humbled by it.
Phinfest was an AMAZING event!
What truly got to each of us was the incredible company we were in. Academy Award winner Louis Psihoyos (The Cove, Racing Extinction director) and members of the awesome Oceanic Preservation Society, Scientist and animal rights advocate Dr. Naomi Rose, Christopher Porter (Ocean Walls, appeared in Blackfish), gray whale expert Alisa Schulman-Janiger and other amazingly talented folks were also honored for works that span almost all cetaceans.
For us, the award signifies (again) that word IS getting out, people ARE listening and maybe....just maybe...we can inspire action to save the orcas and salmon.
For everyone who has stood by us - stood up for us - and helped us get the word out; THANK YOU!
