Take Back the Harbor + When the Dogs Are Gone: The Race
TAKE BACK THE HARBOR
On New York's Governor's Island there is an ambitious goal: to restore oysters to New York Harbor. The foot soldiers of this environmental movement are an unlikely group--high school students at a public school which teaches waterways stewardship alongside math and English. TAKE BACK THE HARBOR highlights these students and their teachers as they persevere to turn the tide on decades of neglect and bring back the health of their city's waterways.

WHEN THE DOGS ARE GONE: THE RACE - "SUKKANIUNNEQ"
On the western coast of Greenland, a young boy dreams of winning the national championship of dog sledding, an ancient form of transportation which has turned into a highly competitive sport. For thousands of years, the genetically unique sled dog has shaped the life of the Inuit people. But all that may be about to change.
