A looming disaster in one of the most spectacular environments on Earth sparks a rescue mission unlike any other in SEA OF SHADOWS, a riveting new documentary with the intensity of a Hollywood thriller from National Geographic Documentary Films. When Mexican drug cartels and Chinese traffickers join forces to poach the rare Totoaba fish in the Sea of Cortez, their deadly methods threaten to destroy virtually all marine life in the region, including the most elusive and endangered marine mammal species on Earth, the Vaquita Porpoise.

Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is featured with Operation Milagro, their campaign to save the Vaquita by pulling the poacher’s driftnets to prevent entanglement and death to the Vaquita, Totoaba and other sea life. The Vaquita Porpoise has been pushed to edge of extinction by illegal fishing since it was first discovered in 1958, with an estimate of less than a dozen remaining in their habitat.
