One night only: Join the Center for Biological Diversity for a screening of “Zan”, a documentary about one of Earth’s most endangered marine mammals — the Okinawa dugong. Using breathtaking underwater footage, the film explores the struggle of people in Okinawa, Japan, to protect these gentle manatee relatives from a planned U.S. military airbase that would destroy crucial habitat. Center attorney/activist Miyoko Sakashita will introduce the film. She’ll discuss the dugong’s role in Okinawa’s indigenous culture and how Bay Area residents can defend these amazing animals.
