Oral History of Coastal Change

Earlier this year, project researchers spoke with Levy County residents who were kind enough to share their time and stories on what they had personally encountered regarding coastal change.  As long-time local residents, the interviewees are uniquely positioned to comment on the gradual changes they have witnessed within the area.  Sea level rise is a slow, but constantly mounting problem and such insights are a valuable way to gather first-hand knowledge of these changes-over-time and a more intimate picture of how daily life,  local economy, and rural culture is beginning to be impacted.  The results of these interviews have been documented in the form of an oral history video which we are pleased to share below.

Special thanks to the participating residents of Levy County, Florida Sea Grant, and the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program.
