Tangier is seeking federal approval for breakwaters to protect the western and northern end of Uppards - a small eroding barrier island that protects Tangier from the north.   Your contribution will be for Tangier's local share of the $9 million dollar project that would be due upon approval. Town officials are  working  to make this project a reality as it competes with other proposed projects nationwide.  The Town has a separate account specifically for funding this project.  Please see mailing information  to send a donation of any amount to aid in the protection of  this very beautiful, innately unique, and historically rich 400- year old community.

About the Director:
Jenny Roberts is a documentary filmmaker from Pocomoke, MD. Tangier came to her attention while pursuing a Master of Fine Arts in Film from Ohio University. Jenny chose to center her thesis on Tangier Island after a happenstance conversation with an island native who explained the serious erosion threatening her home. Despite Tangier’s close proximity to Pocomoke, Jenny was unaware of this community’s struggle and found that in itself problematic. Since learning of the threat to this inimitable place, Jenny's goal has been to increase awareness so that others in the region and the country can become involved in the preservation of Tangier. The film has been screened in Maryland, Delaware, and Virignia with continued circulation across the country.
