Maine’s coast — full of inviting beaches, snug harbors, bold cliffs, sheltered bays, jagged peninsulas and tidal estuaries, runs a remarkable 3,500 miles long. Adding in our islands brings the total closer to 5,000. Protecting this diverse coastline requires the initiation and sustained efforts of a complex network of individuals, organizations, agencies and communities.
This film explores conservation efforts along this world-renowned region where the land meets the sea. The story of coastal conservation in Maine brings together fragile habitats and threatened ecosystems, astounding beauty and places for recreation, abundant (but dwindling) natural resources and the livelihoods of many people. It’s a story of inspiration, innovation and persistence. Astonishingly, less than 1% of Maine’s coast offers guaranteed public access, and many conservationists are in an upstream battle to save the precious few remaining parcels.
