Hammer Dam
Matthew Ritenour, Jesse Dizard, The Advanced Laboratory for Visual Anthropology | 2019 | 8 min
Harold Hammer lives on his remote property in Northern California. When the Department of Fish and Wildlife discover his homemade dam used for hydropower, he has to decide if he wants to disrupt his way of life on the chance that removing his dam will increase salmon spawning habitat.

Spawning Hope
Roshan Patel | 2019 | 10 min
Coral biologists are concerned about the genetic health of many endangered coral. Spawning Hope follows a team of scientists as they attempt to use cryopreserved coral sperm to introduce coral DNA to new populations of elkhorn coral. If this technique works, it could have lasting impacts on how conservationists are able to protect and restore endangered corals from near extinction.

Hat Creek: A Wild Trout Legacy
Michael Wier | 2018 | 14 min
Back in 1971, when Caltrout was formed, the Hat Creek project demonstrated that an organization of passionate anglers could come together to restore a stream and bring back an iconic fishery. More than that though, a new concept for wild trout management was embraced - the idea that we can do without hatchery fish, that the ethic of catch and release is good for fish and anglers alike, and the idea that having a controlled set of regulations focused on wild trout could be successful.

Last Call For The Bayou Episode 2: Mud, Sweat & Fears
Dominic Gill, Nadia Gill, Encompass Films | 2019 | 11 min
Dr. Alex Kolker is the face of the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium, one of the premier research institutes working to understand the mechanisms and impacts of coastal land loss. He has spent the last decade studying subsidence and sea-level rise in an effort to understand whether or not restoration will be sufficient to stem the loss of land. In this episode of the 5-part Last Call for the Bayouseries, Dr. Kolker walks us through the current restoration projects and shows how New Orleans sinking and the state has a plan to save the coast.

Into the Black
Kenzie Greer | 2019 | 20 min
Many of the ecosystems in Alabama and throughout the southeast evolved with fire. Human ignited "prescribed fire", also known as controlled burns, are an essential technique to mimic this natural process to maintain and restore critical habitats. With an ever growing population and extensive efforts to restore large areas of native habitats such as longleaf pine, partnerships are critical to provide the capacity necessary to implement fire on the scale needed to accomplish these objectives.

Herd Impact
Peter Byck, Paula and Jim Crown, Carbon Nation | 2018 | 23 min
North Texas couple, Deborah Clark and Emry Birdwell, let nature dictate how they graze their cattle. They are having tremendous success in regenerating their land and their lives; providing a healthy habitat for migratory birds while raising one of the largest herds of cattle in Texas.
