A prominent voice in the film is Don Riepe, Director of the Littoral Society's Northeast Chapter and a resident of Broad Channel. Riepe, who is the Littoral Society's Jamaica Bay Guardian™, has dedicated his life to protecting and restoring Jamaica Bay.
The location of Jamaica Bay, combined with the rich food resources found there, make it a regionally important fish, wildlife, and plant habitat. It's geographic location acts to concentrate marine and estuarine species migrating between the New York Bight portion of the North Atlantic, the Hudson River and the Raritan River estuary.
Jamaica Bay supports seasonal or year-round populations of 300 species of birds, 100 species of finfish, 50 different kinds of butterfly, and a host of human residents.
