Green Screen

I recently went to Jekyll Island to meet with my Georgia Sea Turtle Center collaborator and attend the Green Screen event put on by EcoFest Film Fesitval, Georgia Sea Grant, and Jekyll Island.

I brought along undergraduate student Abby Stern to help present two posters we made. The event was free and open to the public. I met many people I have worked with, but had not met yet, and also saw familiar faces. At the poster session and reception, we were able to talk to the attendees about the Southeast Atlantic Marine Debris Initiative and our useful mobile app to map marine debris, Marine Debris Tracker.

Then we all went in to watch the outstanding movie, Chasing Ice. An estimated 800 people attended (well over the projected 300!).

The movie was followed by an excellent panel and dialog.

As my first time to Jekyll Island, it was a fun and productive trip.
