"Southwest Florida's Mangrove Coast" Broadcast on all Florida PBS TV
“Southwest Florida’s Mangrove Coast” is a documentary featuring the 40 year history of Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve and displays the nature and beauty of southwest Florida. Produced by Emmy award-winning cinematographer Elam Stoltzfus, the film delves into the scientific work being done at Rookery Bay on mangroves, pythons, sea turtles, and other species. Land managers, scientists, and local partners discuss potential threats to the region as well as what is being done to protect southwest Florida’s mangrove coast for future generations.
Here is an example where a major highway was planned to be built through the center of pristine mangrove islands. But a group of citizens came together in the 60's to stop the road to nowhere. Hear the rest of the story in this documentary.
