Return of Harbor Porpoises to San Francisco Bay directed by Jim Sugar
This feel-good film follows a team combatting pollution to bring harbor porpoises back to the San Fransisco bay. By reducing the pollutants that fouled the water and destroyed wildlife, one of the primary unexpected consequences was that cleaning the water promoted the return of predators to San Francisco Bay. Filmed in concert with Professor Jonathan Stern, a marine biologist at San Francisco State University, the crew discovered that harbor porpoises were once again swimming under the Golden Gate Bridge and into San Francisco Bay in large numbers.
