Galapagos Blue and Co
Ericka Carrera de Luk
Corona, the worldwide known beer brand was born at the beach, surrounded by ocean. But today, that place is more than ever in danger. One of the reasons is related to the over consumption of plastic in the world. This material used every day is drowning our oceans, killing our wildlife and destroying our beaches. Corona asked our Creative Director Antoine to make a powerful content that impacts people minds and would make them change their habits (yes, there is still hope). Antoine with his two friends Ericka and Rafa travelled to the Galapagos Islands, one of the richest places in the world in biodiversity and he captured exceptional images of animals that you can’t find anywhere else. During their trip they followed scientists in two of their missions. The first one is a study on the amount of plastic that is found on pristine islands, and the second one is the study of the habits of sea turtles. Two great movies came out of this unique experience which are full of emotions and are demonstrating how fragile this paradise is and how we can act to preserve it.
Galapagos Islands are like nowhere else in the world, Part One
One of the richest places in the world for biodiversity, the Galapagos Islands provide a truly unique experience to anyone who is lucky enough to set foot here.
Galapagos Islands are a fragile paradise, Part Two
In this film we are showing more details about the problems encountered in this archipelago. What are the threats and how can they be reduced?
"This place was a real slap in my face in terms of biodiversity. I have always heard and seen a lot about the Galapagos, but I never expected to see so many different species of animals in one place. It was also a shock to see how much these islands are affected by our bad habits as humans.
The Galapagos are one of the most protected places in the world, but they suffer a lot from the plastic pollution that the world is facing. The Galapagos Islands is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen and I hope that this film will bring some sensitivity and reflection to the people who will watch it."
