Adaptation of a Turtle Beach to Climate Change

Marine turtles and their nesting beaches are threatened by sea level rise and overheating, resulting from climate change. A WWF project in Junquillal beach, Costa Rica, joins forces with the community to lead the implementation of adaptation measures, such as: coastal planning in consideration of sea level rise and expected flooding, restoration of coastal vegetation for shade and educating children with a new awareness for the links between climate, nature conservation and community well-being.This video is the abridged (8 min) version of the full length (24 min) documentary "Playas Calientes - Olas Furiosas" (2009).
