North Cove, Wash. is one of the fastest-eroding U.S. coastlines, losing roughly 150 feet of land per year. However, the residents of North Cove refuse to give up without a fight. MediaLab at Pacific Lutheran University tells the story of residents, the tribal community, and farmers as they rally against the waves to save what’s left of their town.
