Document the importance of citizen action and the role of urban nature in protecting our cities from the effects of climate change.

Jamaica Bay (also part of the Gateway National Recreation Area) is home to the only national wildlife refuge in the whole country that is accessible by subway, and hosts a rich ecosystem providing habitat for hundreds of migratory bird species. In the “Fall: Plants, Pollinators & Resilience” segment of Episode 4 of THE CROWD & THE CLOUD, citizen scientists at the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge collect information on pollinators and plants to help promote environmental resilience. But that’s not all the citizen science being done there. Narrated by Susan Sarandon, the independent feature documentary, “Saving Jamaica Bay,” is a tale of concerned citizens coming together to protect their way of life through becoming urban environmentalists. They fought government inaction and overcame Hurricane Sandy to clean up and restore the largest open space in New York City. Jamaica Bay had become a “dumping ground for garbage, sewage and bullet-riddled mobsters”. Citizen action and urban nature play a role in protecting cities from the effects of climate change, and this documentary aims to demonstrate that.
