This award-winning, five-part documentary examines how residents, officials and scientists in Maine are anticipating and planning for sea level rise, coastal flooding and erosion expected to accompany climate change.

The video was produced by Oregon Sea Grant as part of NOAA-funded collaborative project with Maine to assess the resilience of coastal communities, to explore how climate variability and coastal hazards may be affecting the coasts, to encourage collaboration among local decision makers and property owners, and to discover barriers to taking action to prepare for the effects of climate change.
