Guner Tautrim has lived his entire life on the pristine Gaviota Coast, watching as the limits of urban sprawl inch closer to his home.
The land he has grown to understand and love makes up the last stretch of undeveloped coastline in Southern California and is one of the most biologically diverse and threatened regions in the world.
Despite its importance, landowners and environmentalists in the area struggle constantly to withstand the pressures of development.
Working on his father’s ranch, Guner Tautrim utilizes regenerative practices in tune with the needs of the local land and climate. However, due to blanket legislation intended to prevent the exploitation of the environment, he must fight for understanding.
