DESCRIPTION

As part of the Speaking Sustainably Film Series, South Florida PBS (WPBT2 – WXEL) and the Deering Estate invite you to a complimentary reception and screening of the Battleground Everglades, Dangerous Seas, on January 24th at 7pm at the Deering Estate Visitor Center Theatre.

Event is free and open to the public.

BATTLEGROUND EVERGLADES explores the struggle to save one of the world’s most revered wetlands: Florida’s Everglades. Devastated by a century of drainage and development, the entire Everglades watershed is suffering from man-made pollution, habitat destruction and species decline.

Hosted by Charles Kropke, author and well-known Everglades expert, the 6-part series showcases dramatic challenges and innovative solutions to restore this World Heritage Site. As more and more countries battle sea level rise, invasive species, algae outbreaks and other environmental issues, the Everglades is poised to become a beacon of learning and hope.

“DANGEROUS SEAS” EPISODE:

South Florida is at the epicenter of a world-wide threat from sea level rise. DANGEROUS SEAS examines how Florida’s porous Biscayne aquifer, the source of South Florida’s drinking water, is endangered by rising oceans and other contaminates.

The program also journeys to a remote Florida Bay mud flat, to discover how sea level rise contributes to dwindling bird nesting populations. In Everglades National Park, audiences can watch scientists studying how sea level rise is affecting critical peat soil, a building block for Florida’s storm-vulnerable coasts. DANGEROUS SEAS also showcases a well-known Florida artist using his own creativity to inspire environmental restoration.

The series will begin airing on both South Florida PBS stations in February 2018, See below airdate schedule!
