Featured is a public screening of Deep in the Heart: A Texas Wildlife Story (U.S., 2022, 103 minutes), a visually stunning celebration of Texas’ diverse landscapes and remarkable wildlife, as narrated by Matthew McConaughey. Following the screening, Deep in the Heart producer Josh Winkler will share insights into the film, and Gina Shultz (Deputy Assistant Director of Ecological Services for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service) will speak to 50 years of conservation and recovery under the Endangered Species Act (ESA), and how collaboration remains key to the next 50 years of ESA conservation.  

An American Sign Language interpreter will accompany the spoken program, and the film will be shown with captions.
