How does sea level rise affect my life?
As sea levels rise, coastal areas become more vulnerable to flooding, especially during storms and high tides. This can lead to damage to infrastructure, homes, and businesses, as well as the displacement of populations.
What is the Tiscornia Marsh Nature Restoration Project?
The Tiscornia Marsh Restoration and Sea Level Rise Adaptation Project will restore the marshland, strengthen the levee and enhance the public trail which will in turn prevent local flooding. Restoring the marshland will also establish a habitat for wildlife to flourish.
Why should I care about sea level rise?
Addressing sea level rise is crucial for vulnerable communities living in low-lying coastal areas. Recognizing the importance of sea level rise empowers you to have a voice in decision-making processes, advocating for your rights and contributing to a more equitable society.
What causes sea level rise?
Sea level rise is primarily caused by the warming of the oceans, which is driven by the increase in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere due to human activities such as burning fossil fuels and deforestation.
