Plastic Ocean Project's short film, 356, follows our team on an unexpected journey to find 356, a newborn North Atlantic right whale. It's been accepted into 9 film festivals and we are currently screening the documentary short throughout many cities across the globe.
In the first two months of 2023, over 20 whales were found dead along the east coast of the US. The goal of Operation 356 is to expose the alarming uptick in these marine mammal deaths and spread awareness as to what can be done to protect their declining populations. We view these losses as an urgent message from the ocean. Critical action is needed as it is estimated that there are less than 350 of these majestic creatures left.

The story told in our short film, 356, is just the beginning. It sets the stage for the full-length documentary, "If the Ocean Could Talk - A Voice for the North Atlantic".
Operation 356 screenings support fundraising efforts for the completion of this important story. Our documentary reveals doable, viable solutions to plastic pollution that everyone can support. It also gives a glimpse into one of the most biologically diverse locations along the Eastern Seaboard. Join us and discover Hope Spot Hatteras and the vital role it plays in maintaining a healthy balance for all forms of marine life.
Our goals is for the completed film to bring communities together and hear this message of hope for the North Atlantic. We aim to inspire others to take action towards positive changes that will save not just the North Atlantic, but all seven of the world's oceans.
