      An illustration of the enviable life of the average Koala. These little fellas are only active for about 2 hours per day - and not all at once either! The other 22 hours are spent sleeping. Not surprising really when the only thing they eat is Eucalyptus leaves! The name "ko-ala" is an aboriginal word which means "does not drink"! These particular Koalas are wild, and live within the Belair National Park just outside Adelaide, South Australia. Music is "So Relax" by Leon Redbone

          What do you see when you see a gum tree? This is the central question in 'Snow Gums to River Reds' , a 25 minute film about the Eucalyptus species from Mount Kosciuszko to the Murray River around Albury, in New South Wales, Australia. The film has been produced by the Slopes2Summit (S2S) conservation partnership and Mosquito Productions. S2S is part of the Great Eastern Ranges Initiative (GER), Australia's largest conservation initiative spanning 3,600km along eastern Australia. The film was made possible through a financial gift from the Bjarne K Dahl Trust, a philanthropic body entirely committed to Eucalypt research, conservation , and community education. The film was completed in November 2012, and tells a story of a handful of the 30 or so Eucalypts found in the area, through the people who live and work along the route from Australia's highest peak to the banks of the Murray River.

            "Petrichor" is a short film following the making of Australian ceramic artist Shannon' Garson's latest exhibition. "Petrichor" articulates landscape using domestic pots as vessels for drawings about the strange beauty and wonder to be found in the marginalized eco-systems of the littoral zone. Details of shorelines, rock pools and coastal wallum scrub are revealed in the sgraffito and oxide drawings that crawl over the surface of these delicately thrown porcelain vessels.

                  Parte del proyecto documental ¡TODOS SOMOS INDIGENAS! Música de Carioca A Preguiça de Coleira (Bradypus torquatus) endêmica na Mata Atlântica, esta altamente ameaçada. A Preguiça Comum está invadindo a área da Preguiça de Coleira por causa do alimento que ja não está encontrando na sua área por conta dessas plantações de eucaliptus que já estão também invadindo a área da Preguiça de Coleira. O objetivo do Centro liderado por Vera Lucia de Oliveira é recuperar preguiças apreendidas de caçadores e comerciantes de animais e doadas ao Centro pelo Ibama, Policia Federal, Corpo de Bombeiros e pessoas da comunidade. Com os exemplares de preguiça obtidos, torna-se possível observar e estudar os aspectos da bioecologia, anatomia e fisiologia de Bradypus torquatus para auxiliar na preservação dessa espécie para sua posterior reintrodução na mata. Lutemos para que se cumpra a lei e pela inmediata demarcaçao da area da mono-cultura do eucalipto de modo a evitar seu plantio indiscriminado em áreas de Mata Atlântica, destruindo matas e toda sua Biodiversidade.

Ilheus/ Itabuna (73)32143228 El Perezoso de Collar (Bradypus torquatus), especie endémica de la Mata Atlántica, esta en gran peligro de extinción. El objetivo del Reserva Zoobotânica del Perezoso, liderado por Vera Lucia de Oliveira es recuperar Perezosos confiscados a los cazadores y traficantes de animales. Con los ejemplares obtenidos, es posible observar y estudiar los aspectos de la bio-ecología, anatomía y fisiología de Bradypus torquatus para ayudar en su preservación para la posterior reintroducción en el Bosque Atántico. El Perezoso Comun está invadiendo la zona del Perezoso de Collar debido a la falta de alimento en su área debido a estas plantaciones de eucaliptos que a su vez tambien están invadiendo la zona del Perezoso de Collar. El Bosque Atlántico es considerado por la comunidad científica mundial como uno de los ecosistemas más ricos en Biodiversidad del mundo, y el segundo más amenazada de extinción. Por ese motivo en 1991 la UNESCO elevó el Bosque Atlántico a la categoría de Reserva de la Biosfera, siendo hoy una de las tres prioridades de conservación del mundo. Luchemos para que se cumpla la ley y por la demarcación inmediata del área del monocultivo de eucalipto para evitar la plantación indiscriminada en las zonas de la Mata Atlántica, con la destrucción de los bosques y toda su Biodiversidad.
