In the midst of extinctions and stress triggered by pollution, over-fishing and habitat loss, the web of marine biodiversity is increasingly fragile. This film combines science, art, history and conservation, following a global quest to find living representatives of the bizarre and beautiful sea creatures captured in glass over 150 years ago by renowned artists Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka -- 570 sculptures of jellyfish, octopus, squid, anemones and nudibranchs now housed in the Cornell Collection of Blaschka Invertebrate Models. Narrated by Ted Danson and featuring Cornell marine biologist Dr. Drew Harvell, Fragile Legacy is produced by David O. Brown with support by the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future and the Corning Museum of Glass Foundation.
