HOTSPOT follows conservationists throughout southern Appalachia including a scientist, hiker, hunter and indigenous leader who are on the forefront of protecting this unique region. Working across organizational boundaries, these conservationists are confronted with the complexities of conservation while battling against conflicting interests, extractive industries and climate change. After years of struggle, they will discover if their life's work will save one of the most biodiverse and overlooked regions in the temperate world.
