Molly Polk – Film Star


In summer 2013, graduate student Molly Polk assisted in a field module on mountain mire ecology at the High Mountain Partnership (HiMAP) 3rd International Conference in Huaraz, Peru. Through the USAID-supported partnership, Peru and Nepal are addressing the impacts and risks of rapidly melting glaciers in high mountain areas. The HiMAP brings scientists, governments officials, and local people together to share lessons learned on managing high-risk, high-impact floods caused by rapidly melting glaciers. As part of this, a 10-minute video of the workshop was created during the HiMAP workshop by Skyship Films. This film shows what happens when locals met with the international scientists and engineers to collaborate on how to adapt to melting glaciers. Check out the video here.
