Dauphin Island, AL ; by George Crozier & John Dindo

Sand Wars, An Investigation Documentary, By Denis Delestrac

Is beach sand an infinite resource? Can the existing supply satisfy a gigantic demand fueled by construction booms?

We have gotten into the habit of using the terms coast and shore interchangeably. But there is a difference, and it is not just semantic.

Plastic Pollution

Plastic Pollution

The world population is living, working, vacationing, increasingly conglomerating along the coasts, and standing on the front row of the greatest, most unprecedented, plastic waste tide ever faced.
