‘Bouillabaisse of life’ in San Francisco Bay

January 7, 2013

San Francisco Bay is the largest estuary on the Pacific coast of the Americas, and it is a place of great biological diversity. We journey underneath its surface to swim with the harbor seals; we look overhead at a million migratory birds; and we explore marshlands along its shores.

Tide Ride is the sixth and final in a web series Bay Nature is showcasing about how the Bay Area will fare under rising oceans. The stories were produced by Claire Schoen Media. Check out our interview with Claire Schoen about her work and this project.

Claire Schoen Media is a production company that has been creating radio, film and multimedia programming for over 25 years. RISE was created by a creative team of audio and visual artists.
