Back to “BLACK WAVE: The Legacy of the Exxon Valdez”

August 2, 2012

On the heels of the June screening of BLACK WAVE The Legacy of the Exxon Valdez , Sierra Nanaimo is delighted to host the film’s heroine, Dr. Riki Ott, for a live presentation in Nanaimo this summer.

  • When: Thursday, August 2, 7 pm
  • Where: Vancouver Island University, 900 Fifth Street, Building 200, Room 203.

Riki Ott, PhD is a marine toxicologist, author and former commercial fisher. She was one of the first people on the scene during the Exxon Valdez oil spill, when millions of gallons of crude oil were discharged into the pristine waters of Prince William Sound, Alaska. For over two decades, she has been the face and the voice of the efforts for justice.

Sierra Nanaimo is concerned about the proposed expansion of tankers and pipelines, both Enbridge and Kinder Morgan, on the B.C. coast. Dr. Ott’s wisdom and experience will be of great help in organizing to stop this threat to our beautiful coast and our local economy.
