Blue Carbon

DJ and marine toxicologist Jayda G takes viewers on a global journey to investigate the potential of blue carbon ecosystems in the fight against climate change in the CNN documentary Blue Carbon: Nature’s Hidden Power. The film highlights the ability of these ecosystems to absorb carbon dioxide and enhance food security while protecting coastal communities from the impacts of rising sea levels.

The documentary, airing on Sunday April 21, showcases the power of nature-based solutions for a warming planet, focusing on the relatively newly discovered concept of blue carbon. This term refers to the carbon captured by oceans and coastal areas, specifically in salt marshes, seagrasses, and mangroves. These ecosystems have the capacity to absorb significant amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, offering a promising tool in the battle to slow climate change.

The film follows Jayda G as she travels to six countries across five continents, including Vietnam, Senegal, France, and the United States, where she explores the salt marshes of Florida and the mangroves of Louisiana. The documentary also features an innovative soundtrack from Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA and Brazilian musical icon Seu Jorge, blending music with science to inspire the next generation of conservationists.

Blue Carbon: Nature’s Hidden Power is directed by Emmy® and BAFTA-winning filmmaker Nicolas Brown and executive produced by Sarah Macdonald, David Guy Elisco, and Sean B. Carroll, among others. It is a collaboration between MakeWaves and HHMI Tangled Bank Studios, known for their commitment to crafting awe-inspiring films that shine a light on significant scientific challenges.
