The Edge of the Sea (Episode #505)

KQED World: Wed, Dec 12, 2012 -- 6:00 AM

Since the late 1960's, Puerto Rico's small fishing villages have undergone expansive coastal development, driven by tourism and the growing demand for beachfront property.

This film explores both sides of the privatization of public areas, and the sensitive social and environmental consequences of excessive coastal development.
