Developed in partnership with a team of world-class scientists, educators and conservationists, this powerful and immersive film encourages audiences to appreciate the value of this watershed and dozens like it around the world. Expedition Chesapeake will educate and inspire people everywhere to take the necessary steps to support long-term conservation efforts within their communities and fight for the future of the watershed in their backyards.

We’re delighted to partner with BIG & Digital for world-wide distribution of the film.”
