Jamaica Bay
Podcasts

Jamaica Bay has been presented with environmental and social challenges, especially in the wake of the large-scale social-ecological disturbance like Superstorm Sandy in October 2012. In its wake however, there has been work done to enhance the resilience of the urban coastal ecosystems and communities, and to bring awareness to and among Jamaica Bay.

This is where “Jamaica Bay” — a podcast series highlighting the people that work, live, and play in and around Jamaica Bay, New York City — comes in. The episodic series, which made its debut in April 2017, is produced by New York Sea Grant and the Science and Resilience Institute at Jamaica Bay. New episodes debut each month.
