Check out Yubartas, an amazing documentary about the Whales in Chocó
Yubartas is a groundbreaking documentary about humpbacks and their biggest threats! A journey through the Colombian Pacific, documenting the majestic humpback whales and the importance of marine protected areas for conservation and for the sustainable and economic development of coastal communities.
After a struggle of more than 20 years the black communities of Nuquí (Chocó) achieved that the government declared sixty thousand hectares of the Colombian Pacific as a Marine Protected Area under a figure that will allow them to conserve and use their natural resources in a sustainable manner (DRMI).
However, the Regional District of Integrated Management (DRMI) presents direct threats not only for coastal communities that depend on fishing (70 %) but also for whales and other species that migrate each year to the Colombian Pacific.
Yubartas was filmed on the exact spot that the tribuja port is planned on.
