Jonathon Bird's Secrets Of The Reef To Be Shown At The Smithsonian National Museum Of Natural History
By Matt J. Weiss, February 24, 2009 @ 02:00 AM (EST)
Jonathan Bird Productions is pleased to announce that its latest film, Secrets of the Reef, will be shown at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. on Sunday, March 15th at 2:15 PM as part of the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capitol.

Secrets of the Reef is a gripping story which culminates in a bold statement about reef conservation. It is an immersion into the metropolis of a Pacific coral reef as seen through the lives of three of its inhabitants, a sea turtle, a hermit crab and a fish. Their struggle for survival in a fish-eat-fish world is set against a backdrop of incredible beauty and color. But all is not well in the reef metropolis: an unseen threat approaches closer by the day-one bigger than any they have faced before.
