Scheduled for 2025, this documentary will focus on several amazing conservation movements as well as many ecological events that occur along the flyway's stretch. To those that do not know, the Atlantic flyway is the easternmost (and often overlooked) migration path in the Americas. It begins in South America and some birds that utilize its path end up as far north as Alaska. This flyway remains one of the most important migrations that occur on the planet; a migration that is being put to the test with rapid urbanization along the eastern shore...
"The Atlantic flyway remains one of the most important migration paths on the planet"
We have managed to assemble an amazing team of likeminded scientists, conservationists, entrepreneurs and storytellers who all feel the tale of the Atlantic flyway is a story worth telling.
Dr. James Castonguay and TC Schultz will be our acting executive producers, and we've gathered a host of amazing individuals for our production team.
In addition to an amazing team that we will be highlighting in more detail later, we have also created relationships with some of the world's most respected brands. The project will be in association with the National Audubon Society, Canon USA, Cotopaxi, and others. We have also partnered with different conservation groups such as several National Audubon chapters, the Atlantic Shark Institute, Friend's of Sax-Zim Bog, the Connecticut Audubon Society, NOAA Shark Tagging Program, and many others.
Recently the team has done several scouting trips and expeditions in preparation for production. One of these trips involved the Florida Everglades. There, the team met up with Garl Harrold, an experienced wildlife guide and explorer who is among the best professional wildlife guides in the region. Garl stresses the importance of preserving vital habitat that is integral for birds and other wildlife.
The Florida everglades is packed with biodiversity ranging from the massive saltwater crocodile, to the small and secretive green herons. The cypress domes, as well as the greater everglades area, also serve as an important "rest" area for migrating birds. Songbirds (such as warbler species) and water birds use this environment as a refuge, many of these species moving farther north along the flyway.
As Spring approaches, keep an eye out for migrating bird species, you never know what may pop up during the height of migration season.
