Director: Michael Oates

Narrator: Don Wescott

Delaware has the lowest average elevation of any state, and stands to lose as much as 11% of its land mass by 2100. Communities, non-profits, local and state government have begun developing varied responses to this threat, which are profiled in this short program.


The program was used to promote Delawares' first Sea Level Rise Awareness Week in 2013, aired on WHYY-PBS in Philadelphia, and was subsequently presented and distributed throughout Delaware.

Funded by  the Center for Inland Bays, Delaware Humanities Forum, Green Watch Institute, and Patagonia, with additional support from the Delaware Nature Society.
