Ridge to Ranch to River to Reef: Florida's Conservation Connections

From the scrubby forests and ranch lands in the interior of Florida, far from the tourist eyes, to the beaches and bays south of the Gulf Coast, we explore the way the Sunshine State balances the needs of its citizens and economy with those of its subtropical ecosystem and wildlife. Through research, conservation, and education, can Florida bear its population increase of 1000 people per day?

Director Biography - Maria Luskay

Leads the Media and Communication Arts travel documentary course. “Each of these documentary projects presents unique challenges. We think we know what we’re going to shoot and the direction that the film is going to take, but what actually happens once we get there can be entirely different. Agility is needed to stay true to the original theme but remain open to what the reality is. This gives the students real-world experience in documentary film-making that will serve them well in their careers.”
