Video about wildfire and the endangered Cape Sable Seaside Sparrow

Deer Hammock Wildfire from Into Nature Films on Vimeo.

This five-minute film features a lightning-ignited wildfire and the endangered Cape Sable Seaside Sparrow in Everglades National Park. These last, remaining sparrow populations increase the complexity of fire management in the Everglades.

The video was produced by Jennifer Brown of Into Nature Films. If her name sounds familiar it may be because we embedded one of her other films that she produced for Everglades NP when she was working there under a short-term appointment. That video, River of Fire, is excellent. It’s a shame that the National Park Service could not figure out a way to retain an employee with such unique and valuable skills. But she is still available as a contractor.

  1. Great Video. Over 20 years of working there I never got tired of watching the cycle of fire and regrowth. Ms. Brown does great justice to the Everglades and it’s fire with her skills and talents.
