Harrison Ford’s Latest Role as Mother Ocean
by Carolyn Sotka
A new Conservation International campaign harnesses the celebrity of actors to bring nature to life as a series of characters. Harrison Ford portrays ‘Mother Ocean’, and joins other A-listers in the ‘Nature is Speaking’ film.
Harrison Ford has been a champion for the oceans for decades. With his signature somber voice, warns the audience of the consequences of messing with mother nature. “I’m only going to say this once. If nature isn’t kept healthy, humans won’t survive. Simple as that. I mean, I could give a damn. With or without humans, I’m The Ocean. I covered this entire planet once and I can always cover it again.
‘Nature is Speaking’ was launched last week at the SXSW Eco conference and will run on Virgin America flights, and in-house TV at the Starwood Resorts chain. Also, Pearl Jam will run the series at concerts, including the Austin City Limits Music Festival.
