Shellshocked: Saving Oysters to Save Ourselves

Film Screening and Discussion: Emily Driscoll and George Buckley

SATURDAY, MAY 12, 2:00 PM

In conjunction with the new exhibition, Mollusks, the museum will screen Shellshocked, a new documentary by Emily Driscoll. The film follows efforts to prevent the extinction of wild oyster reefs, which keep oceans healthy by filtering water and engineering ecosystems. Due to overfishing and pollution, much of the world’s wild oyster reefs have been declared “functionally extinct.” Followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker and George Buckley, of the Sustainability and Environmental Management Program at Harvard Extension School.?

Following the film discussion, sample delicious farmed oysters, courtesy of Island Creek Oysters of Duxbury, Ma. Island Creek's marketing director, Chris Sherman, will be on-hand to demonstrate oyster shucking technique, and discuss how his farm raises and harvests oysters and other shellfish using low-impact, sustainable methods.

Regular admission rates apply. Free for members.
