The Watery Wilderness Down South

America's Amazon: an APT documentary on the Mobile Tensaw Delta
I highly recommend a beautiful new documentary I caught this week on Alabama Public Television that explores the great watery wilderness of Mobile Tensaw Delta. It was written and narrated by Ben Raines, the former Mobile Press-Register reporter, now the executive director of the Weeks Bay Foundation.
The documentary, which features Alabama native and well-known scientist E.O. Wilson,  celebrates Alabama's biodiversity and helps us up her in Birmingham both what we have been blessed with and what we are in danger of losing if we don't take care. 
There is a movement afoot to preserve the Delta as a U.S. National Park.
You can stream the video from the APT site or I do believe it will be broadcast again on Sunday afternoon if you want to watch it then or record it.
