Short Film Explores How Public Lands Can Unite Americans

The short film is a reminder that even in a divided America, the issue of public lands can bring us together.

Pacific Island nations have historically contributed very little to greenhouse gas emissions, yet are facing some of the most dramatic ramifications of anthropogenic climate change, primarily in the form of rising sea levels.
