This summer CAVU teamed up again with our long-term partner the Sea Turtle Conservancy to update the 2007 award-winning documentary “Higher Ground: the Battle to Save Florida’s Beaches”. This new film and educational outreach campaign aims to raise awareness about the mismanagement of Florida’s coastal zones and incorporate updated research and new opinions from community leaders, educators, authors, activists, and state and national officials. The state’s refusal to prepare for – or to even acknowledge – the effects of sea level rise on coastal communities will be a focal point. The film will highlight issues through the stories and voices of community members and their demand for action.
