The film SHELLSHOCKED: Saving Oysters to Save Ourselves follows efforts in New York Harbor to prevent the extinction of wild oyster reefs, which keep our oceans healthy by filtering water and engineering ecosystems.

It is presented as part of this spring's Milstein Science Series.


The Milstein Science Series is proudly sponsored by the Irma and Paul Milstein Family.
