Currents from Cuba

Odyssey Earth explores an island that, despite a tragic history, is still home to stunning landscapes, pristine coral reefs and plants and animals that can be found nowhere else on Earth.

We are excited to announce our newest film adventure! Currents from Cuba will take audiences on a journey from the depths of Florida’s Fakahatchee Strand to some of the most wild areas on the island of Cuba. We’ll explore some of the many things that make Cuba completely unique, as well as various ways that Cuba is connected, in ecological terms, to South Florida and the broader region.

Teachers, feel free to download our free classroom resources in support of this enriching film experience. This PowerPoint includes several short quizes, a vocab test and hyperlinks to short videos found on this website. You may use this to prepare for the film experience or as follow up:
