On the shores of the Chesapeake sits Blackwater Wildlife Refuge, 32,000 acres of land that waterfowl and other migrating birds depend on.
But more than 5,000 acres of land have disappeared due to sea level rise.
Marcia Pradines Long is the Project Leader and Refuge Manager who manages this important habitat, working with people and wildlife alike.
Hear her story on how climate change has impacted this area and the species that call it home—and how we can work together to protect its future and save our marshes.
