For decades, Florida’s outstretched coastline welcomed millions of Americans who came in search of their piece of the American dream. But Florida’s beaches are no longer an unspoiled paradise for people and wildlife. A rapidly growing population, coupled with sea level rise and increased storm activity, is severely straining the state’s dynamic barrier islands. This film’s purpose is to educate viewers about the implications of coastal erosion and how it affects all who use the beaches - from homeowners to fishermen, surfers to sea turtles. “Higher Ground” explores a changing reality, and considers ways we might adapt if we are all to continue sharing in Florida’s most valuable natural resource.
