Water’s Journey: Everglades, Restoring Hope DVD (Part 1 of 2)
Water’s Journey, an award-winning PBS documentary series, follows a team of explorers as they trace the dynamic journey of water through caves, springs, rivers, and wetland estuaries and coral reefs. Along the way they learn about the challenges and problems that face our waterways and what needs to be done to protect them.
The Florida Everglades is a land of beauty and diversity. Over the past century, everything that has been done to the Everglades was done in the name of progress. However, endless draining and development of what was once part of a vast floodplain has pushed the Everglades to the brink of collapse.
In and effort to protect one of the greatest wetlands on the planet, a massive restoration plan has been initiated. If successful, the needs of the environment and the needs of millions of people will be met. If it fails – the survival of South Florida hangs in the balance. Join a team of scientists and explorers as they plunge into the heart of the Everglades to learn about what’s happened to this once great place and what’s being done to restore and protect it.
