Last month I produced a video for a new client, the Northeast Wilderness Trust that explains their innovative wilderness protection program, the Wildlands Partnership. My colleague, Joe Klemontovich, and I spent a couple of days with folks from the Northeast Wilderness Trust and the Frenchman Bay Conservancy in the newly conserved Frenchman Bay Community Forest in Hancock, Maine. We filmed a couple of interviews and some killer b-roll during peak foliage.
The Wildlands Partnership was created to increase the amount of land in the northeastern U.S. that is protected as forever wild. Currently, only 3% of conserved land in the region meets this criteria. The Northeast Wilderness Trust uses their Wildlands Partnership program to help local land trusts find the financing to acquire land. This includes taking advantage of The Northeast Wilderness Trust’s Wild Carbon program. To better understand how all this works, watch the video:
As Aaron Dority mentions in the video, the Frenchman Bay Community Forest is unique because it is such a large undeveloped block of forest close to the coast. We were only about a mile from the coast and only about 12 miles from Acadia National Park (you can see the mountains of Acadia in the below photo.)
Let me know how you like the video. Thanks!
