On New York’s Governors Island, an unprecedented program has an ambitious goal: to restore once-bountiful oysters and the environmental benefits they bring to New York Harbor. Directed by award-winning filmmakers Kristi Jacobson and Roger Ross Williams, Take Back the Harbor highlights inspiring teenage students and their teachers at The Harbor School, a remarkable public high school that teaches conservation and leadership of the waterways – including SCUBA diving, raising oyster larvae, operating and maintaining vessels, alongside math and English.
