Rangers Invite Community to Contribute 3x3 Hurricane Stories to Documentary
In the aftermath of three hurricanes in three years, the Environmental Rangers Science, Education, Exploration and Research (SEER) program is filming a feature-length documentary of recent severe storm effects on two tropical wetland Eco-systems.
The Rangers have observed and recorded the Mandahl and Tutu Bay arena since 2003. They are combining their pre-and-post hurricanes observations into a wildlife video entitled: "Mandahl 2020 3x3 Hurricane Hindsights".
To tell as complete a story as possible, the Rangers are inviting Virgin Islanders to share their own Mandahl and Tutu Bay hurricanes experiences through interviews and aftermath images in the documentary.
