Coastal ecologist Steve Fradkin is really, really into the ocean. As a National Park Service scientist, Fradkin spends his days on the coast of Olympic National Park in the intertidal zone. There, a network of incredible plants and animals interact to form a living, breathing ecosystem that is an especially sensitive indicator of environmental health. Climate change is beginning to take its toll on this fragile ecosystem... but as long as Steve gets a good cup of coffee, he'll be out there monitoring the changes and figuring out what we as humans can do to help.
The full length film, Tides, will be out in January 2013.
