DRIFT:Barnegat Bay’s Disappearing Shoreline, Part of the Climate Crisis Teach-in

The Climate Crisis Teach-In is Proud to present DRIFT, A film by Erin Fleming and Monmouth University Production Services in collaboration with Save Barnegat Bay

Tuesday, February 27, 7:00 | Pollak Theater.

Barnegat Bay is an estuary. A convergence of fresh water from rivers and creeks with salt water from the Atlantic. It is one of the most productive ecosystems in the country. It is the stage on which species play out life’s performance to reproduce, restore, relax. It is unrepeatable. This film speaks to the past 50 years of human activity on the bay and the concerns including climate change impacting the estuary. Varying issues voiced by scientific experts are embedded in stories designed to connect with all of the stakeholders on the bay; fishermen, boaters, hunters, tradesmen, and residents. The message is clear: we all must be unabated in our efforts to protect this natural wonder for ourselves, for wildlife, and for future generations. The trailer is available.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion with Erin Fleming Director, Monmouth University Production Services, Britta Forsberg, Executive Director of Save Barnegat Bay, Tom Herrington, Ph,D, Associate Director of the Urban Coast Institute at Monmouth University, and Pedram Daneshgar, Ph.D., Professor of Biology at Monmouth University.
