Episode: Sustainable East End: Francesca Rheannon

We Present a talk by Kevin McAllister of Defend H2O
"Living on the Edge, Coastal Issues and Climate Change and What Will Our Coastal Future Be?

Climate talks are happening in Marrakesh Morocco this week.
A major impact of climate disruption is sea level rise and that was much on the minds of those attending a recent talk by coastal scientist and environmental advocate Kevin McAllister at the South Fork Natural History Museum in Bridgehampton.

During his talk “Living on the Edge, Coastal Issues, Climate Change and What Will Our Coastal Future Be?,” McAllister addressed the physical and ecological impacts of climate change on coastal communities.

What does sea level rise mean for us and what are the appropriate responses to ensure that beaches, wetlands and other natural resources remain sustainable?

Kevin McAllister is founding president of Defend H20 and a past Peconic Baykeeper.
