In March 1940, the author John Steinbeck and his friend, marine biologist Ed Ricketts, sailed down the coast of California and Mexico to the Sea of Cortez. "The abundance of life here gives one an exuberance," they wrote, "a feeling of fullness and richness." Their stated purpose was to document the creatures that inhabit shallow waters and tide pools on the margins of the Sea of Cortez. But it became much more.
Can the story of their journey inspire new efforts to preserve the Sea of Cortez? Journey to the Sea of Cortez, set against gorgeous ocean backdrops and featuring amazing footage of its creatures, seeks to answer that question.
