Whales of Gold. Every winter, following the migration of gray whales, tourists, scientists, and conservationists descend upon the San Ignacio Lagoon in Baja California, Mexico. Whales of Gold raises questions about how to conserve habitat and species in a way that also sustains the livelihoods of local people.

Life Story of the Black Swallowtail Butterfly is a 45-minute narrated documentary that takes place in a garden and at the sea’s edge. Every stage of the butterfly’s life cycle is experienced in vibrant close-up, from conception to pupation to metamorphosis. The film is for adults and for children so that all can gain a deeper understanding of the symbiotic relationship between wildflowers and pollinators and the vital role they play in our ecosystem.
