In 2011, Dr. Guggenheim witnessed what he describes as the “worst environmental disaster” of his life in middle of the South Atlantic. He produced this film in 2013 to raise awareness “about an ecological catastrophe that few know occurred, in a place that few know exists, resulting from a global threat that few are aware of.” The film includes never-before-seen footage of the disaster and aftermath, including new details that have only come to light within the past few months.

Here’s some background on the Summit:
- Every two years Blue Vision Summits bring diverse groups and individuals from the marine conservation community together in Washington, DC to explore new avenues for solutions to the challenges facing our public seas.
- Summits are attended by individuals and organizations that work towards improving ocean conservation efforts from a variety of approaches including education, restoration, science, business and policy.
- The Summits provide a unique opportunity for community members to learn from one another and often result in new collaborations.
- Summits attract and bridge the gaps between citizens, activists, organizations and elected officials.
- Each Summit includes a visit to Capitol Hill where participants visit the offices of Congress members and convey their support for healthy oceans.
- It’s critical that we come together as a movement and a growing constituency of marine conservationists, businesses, scientists, recreational users, youth and others to turn the tide for our public seas.
