Society and nature are increasingly disconnected and tackling biodiversity loss requires restoring this connection. Much can be done to elevate the level of understanding the average member of the public has of Australian biodiversity, particularly within younger generations. Remember the Wild, with financial support from Eucalypt Australia, have been collecting stories and facts from experts and passionate people over the last 12 months.
“Eucalypt” is the result, a series of short, innovative documentaries, produced by Remember the Wild to explore a range of stories about eucalypts and their relevance to our lives using stunning cinematography and sound design, ultimately cultivating an emotional connection with these iconic Australian trees.
At this screening a teaser of the five films will be shown along with one full episode. The five films include:
· Episode 1: Taking Root
· Episode 2: Trials and Connections
· Episode 3: Living Heritage
· Episode 4: Growing Understanding
· Episode 5: Trees of Tomorrow
Proudly supported by Eucalypt Australia and the Royal Society of Victoria, the screening will be followed by a networking function over food and drinks to celebrate the launch of “Eucalypt” and National Eucalypt Day. The other full episodes will be screened in coming months, so be sure to watch out for details on locations and dates!
