This research project, one of the longest running research endeavors on the globe - reveal so much about our world during the last half-century including: climate change; the effects of dangerous chemicals such as PCBs; the loss of habitat; and variations in ecosystems including the variety and number of species. In 2019 this field project associated with the American Museum of Natural History celebrated 50 years!
Since it’s inception in 1969. Directors Helen Hays has successfully involved thousands of people, both scientists and volunteers, with ardor, grace and fun. This films will not only highlight this amazing director and her significant contributions to science but also the myriad of personalities from many countries and backgrounds who have been involved in the project over the years. Through the story of these scientists, we hope to educate and to inspire the viewers to get involved directly in scientific fieldwork.
