Animal Awareness Night – Sunday 10/11

Includes the productions Guardians of the Gulf, looking at the impact of Red Tide on our local and worldwide waterways. Fifteen Legs documents a group of animal rights activists who are the pioneers of a network to preserve the lives of domestic animals in America. The Witness answers the question – “How does a construction contractor from a tough Brooklyn neighborhood become an impassioned animal advocate?” And the WEDU productions Horses of Proud Spirit and Dolphin Rescue and a special episode of Up Close with Cathy Unruh devoted to protecting black cats.
