Trees talk, know family ties, and care for their young? Is this too fantastic to be true? German forester Peter Wohlleben (author of The Hidden Life of Trees) and scientist Suzanne Simard (The University of British Columbia, Canada) have been observing and investigating the communication between trees over decades. And their findings are most astounding.
'Intelligent Trees' features the main observations that are covered in Wohlleben's book such as the stump that has been kept alive by it's neighboring trees, the old tree-couple that looks after each other, the Mother Trees that suckle their offspring, etc. This film also goes beyond those observations and claims, by matching them with the latest underlying Forest Science Research. 45 mins
'Coastline in Crisis’ analyses the factors contributing to the continuing rapid beach and dune erosion at Inverloch surf beach. The video contains drone and photographic footage of the rapidly-eroding shoreline, and interviews with Inverloch Coastal Resilience Project team members, local business owners and community representatives. 31 mins
The 'Cost of Sand' focusses on the potential destruction of a crucial bio-link on the edge of the Ramsar wetlands from proposed expansion of sandmining in Bass Coast, Victoria. It features interviews with scientists and conservationists about the significance of preserving the last remnant coastal bushland in the region and the vulnerable wildlife and ecosystems it supports. It also shows the strength of community support for protecting what remains.
