Video: Coastal Dune Lakes

Film by Elam Stoltzfus

The coastal dune lakes of northwest Florida are home to many diverse species-some of them endangered such as the loggerhead sea turtle, the snowy plover, and the Choctawhatchee beach mouse. These lakes also offer locals and visitors a peaceful haven, which has led to an increase in human activity resulting in both positive and negative effects.

Journey with filmmaker Elam Stoltzfus to see what makes these lakes unique and how they are being protected. The film explores what local organizations are doing to ensure that future generations can enjoy Florida’s natural beauty and endangered wildlife, and also travels to New South Wales, Australia to offer insight about the rare phenomenon of coastal dune lakes around the world.
