I am very impressed by this series and cannot recommend it highly enough to anyone wanting to see conservation methods put into action.

Carl Safina is the marine biologist who runs The Blue Ocean Institute and has authored Song for the Blue Ocean: Encounters Along the World's Coasts and Beneath the Seas and The View from Lazy Point: A Natural Year in an Unnatural World [Hardcover]. This series is produced by John Angier and hosted by Safina, and is currently airing on PBS.

Safina gets viewers close to some of the most economically and climatically vulnerable marine populations around our planet, and he gives us a look at marine conservation successes there.

This DVD contains the series premiere. "Shark Reef" looks at the self-imposed fishery limitations agreed upon around the Glover's Reef sanctuary in Belize. These voluntary limitations are helping the reef shark population of this uninhabited atoll recover after Asian shark fin demand dealt a dramatic blow to it.

The second episode is also on this DVD, called "The Sacred Island." This one illuminates a much less well documented success around tiny Misali Island in the Zanzibar Archipelago. A long, drawn-out donor protest against a government lease of the island to an Italian developer helped give impetus to an Islamic community association called the Misali Island Conservation Association. Not long ago, the government's leasing plan was successfully scuttled, and now MICA assesses fees on tourist divers to support both economic and enforcement activities around the reef.

I loved the message that the video gave. Also I was thrilled have my photo of a Caribbean reef shark that I photographed in the Bahamas be published on the DVD cover, where my business Undersea Discoveries was credited.

Judge David Johnson, DVD Verdict-- Shark Reef / The Sacred Island is a two episode DVD set from the series Saving the Ocean with Carl Safina. Safina is a marine biologist ("renowned," according to the back of the disc case), who journeys to different corners of the planet researching the latest in general ocean health.

This is solid show, beautifully filmed, and full of interesting information. Carl Safina is an interesting host and he obviously has a deep and abiding passion for the subject matter. His presentation is straightforward and he adeptly transmits his enthusiasm for marine biology. If you have any interest in ocean related shows, check this out. It's well done.

The DVD is lean. Shows look slick in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen, the 2.0 stereo mix is standard-issue, and no extras.
