Dan Hendrick is a Queens-based environmental activist producing a film called “Jamaica Bay Lives,” and he is about $400 dollars short of raising the funds needed to complete his project.

Speaking to the Queens Chronicle, Hendrick summarized the goal and importance of his project:

Hurricane Sandy is a wake-up call for our nation about the importance of preparing for a changing climate. Many people are now homeless or struggling to find ways to pay for repairs. The Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge has been permanently altered. The subway line that connects Jamaica Bay to the rest of New York City was seriously damaged and won’t open for months. The very future of the bay and those who call it home is a giant question mark.

Please help us document these pivotal moments and draw attention to the importance of saving Jamaica Bay.
