Open Your Eyes to Jamaica Bay

Young great horned owls at the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, which is the only wildlife refuge accessible by subway in the U.S. More than 330 species of bird have been observed at the bay.

For most New Yorkers, Jamaica Bay is just some place out by JFK airport. But the new documentary "Saving Jamaica Bay," directed by David Sigal, calls attention to the natural wonders that lie below the air traffic. The film honors the local residents who never wavered in their commitment to the bay, even after Hurricane Sandy wiped out their homes.
