Jeedara: Awesome Nature Documentary

Nature Down Under is mysterious. This tremendous new documentary Jeedara the film celebrates the magnificence of the Great Australian Bight.

The Great Australian Bight is a priceless ecological jewel stocked with the largest remaining population of Southern right whales on the planet. It?s a biologically rich nursery grounds for critically endangered Great white sharks, Leatherback turtles, Southern bluefin tunas, colossal Blue whales and so many more unique marine species. The Bight is also the longest ice-free coastline in the southern hemisphere.

On board of Sea Shepherd?s flagship, The Steve Irwin, the Wilderness Society of South Australia, Bob Brown Foundation, Bunna Lawrie, Mirning Elder and Sea Shepherd Australia protested British Petroleum?s (BP) plan to drill for oil and gas in the Bight. The campaign, dubbed Operation Jeedara, was a smashing global success. It collected unprecedented footage of the Bight.

Soon after Operation Jeedara returned to port, BP announced abandoning their plans to drill in the Bight. The campaign was an enormous environmental win!

On Thursday, June 8 at 6PM, Jeedera the film will premier in the United States at Harmony Gold Theatre in Los Angeles, Calif.

Jeff Hansen, Managing Director Sea Shepherd Australia told me that, “After sell-out shows around Australia, it?s now America?s turn to see one of the truly great natural wonders of the world, one of the globe?s best kept secrets, the Great Australian Bight. This film is the story of the campaign, that showcases one of the last big marine wilderness areas on Earth, one of the world?s most significant Southern right whale nurseries, Nature on a grand scale, and one of the biggest environmental wins of 2016.”

Jeedara the film has recently been selected as a finalist for the Hollywood Independent International Documentary Awards. This breathtaking nature documentary reveals the majesty of the Great Australian Bight.
