VIDEO: Olympic National Park’s coastal ecology

Olympic National Park has released a short film that follows the park’s coastal ecologist as he travels one of the wildest coastlines in North America.

Titled “Tides of Change,” The 12-minute film (watch it above) documents ongoing scientific monitoring and explores how climate change is altering the conditions and chemistry of the coast’s rocky intertidal zone.

“Climate change is a critical challenge for the National Park Service today,” Olympic National Park Superintendent Sarah Creachbaum said in a statement. “Science, research, and monitoring help us understand the impacts of climate change and enable us to adapt and respond.”

“Tides of Change” and other short films about the work of park scientists can be found here.
