Changing Seas, a WPBT2 original production, received an Emmy Award in the Health Science and Environment category at the 34th Annual Suncoast Emmy Awards on Saturday, December 4th at the Westin Beach Resort in Fort Lauderdale.

The winning Changing Seas episode, Sentinels of the Seas, focuses on the impacts legacy contaminants are having on our bottlenose dolphin population. “These toxins are posing a serious threat to not only marine mammals, but humans as well,” says series producer Alexa Elliott.

The WPBT2 production team includes: Jack Kelly, Executive Producer; Alexa Elliott, Producer; Sean Hickey, Editor; Allan Farrell, Videographer; Jeremy Nicholson, Videographer; Veronique Koch, Associate Producer and Kandra Velez, Associate Producer.

Changing Seas is made possible by a generous grant from The Batchelor Foundation.
