Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah)

Throwe Environmental helped the Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah) finalize a Tribal Climate Adaptation Plan to guide the Tribe’s efforts in becoming more resilient to sea-level rise, erosion, flooding, and other climate-driven hazards. The plan prioritizes next steps for action and establishes a pathway toward funding and implementing priority projects. 

Throwe also worked with the WTGHA to host a regional Tribal Leadership Exchange on Martha’s Vineyard in May 2022. In conjunction with this in-person event, Throwe captured the experiences and stories of Tribal Elders, leaders, and members in Season 2 of “The Leadership Exchange Podcast.” The podcast provides audio case studies, capturing the very changes Tribal members have seen in their climate, as well as potential actions to address those changes.
