In California and other regions affected by drought, agriculture is suffering from a lack of water and farms are being abandoned at an alarming rate. But some people have developed solutions to capture the rains that DO fall. In this state and in many other dry regions around the world, land restoration helps water penetrate healthy soils and in turn increase crop yields. This film explores the work of Erik Ohlsen, Geoff Lawton and other growers, permaculture designers and educators, showing how intentional design can benefit both humans and nature.

GAMBLING ON EXTINCTION is a powerful documentary about greed and a merciless battle over a limited resource: wild elephants and rhinos. There is a war against nature raging in the savannahs and jungles of Africa and Asia. The illegal trade in wildlife is estimated to generate $20 billion per year. Wildlife crime is a highly organized business, luring unscrupulous investors and warlords. We are facing the greatest mass extinction since the era of the dinosaurs and as numbers go down, the prices go up, making it a perverse futures market in extinction.

BANKING NATURE investigates the commercialization of the natural world. Protecting our planet has become big business with companies promoting new environmental markets. This involves species banking, where investors buy up vast swathes of land, full of endangered species, to enable them to sell ‘nature credits’. Companies whose actions destroy the environment are now obliged to buy these credits and new financial centres have sprung up, specializing in this trade.

Haiti is known to be the poorest country of the western hemisphere and is still struggling to get on its feet from a disastrous earthquake, but Haiti’s real problem is the complete degradation of its natural resources. Natural forests cover today less than two percent of its territory. Scientists predict a mass extinction of Haiti’s biodiversity. No other country has more amphibians threatened by extinction.

A team of scientists and naturalists travel on foot, by car, boat and helicopter to the most remote locations of the country to investigate the current state of Haiti’s biodiversity and surprisingly discover almost 50 new species and rediscover species thought to be lost. The extent of discoveries is extremely rare in the world of natural science.

The Last Ocean

$89.00$250.00

With stunning footage of Antarctica’s unique landscapes and wild life, The Last Ocean profiles the international battle over commercial fishing in the Ross Sea, the last pristine ocean ecosystem on earth.

The Ross Sea is a vast, icy landscape that teems with life — whales, seals and penguins carving out a place on the very edge of existence. This ‘living laboratory’ is one of the last places where the delicate balance of nature still prevails, largely untouched by humans. But an international fishing fleet has recently made its way to the Ross Sea, targeting the highly lucrative Antarctic Toothfish, sold as Chilean Sea Bass around the world.

“HIGHLY RECOMMENDED”
May/June 2015  Video Librarian magazine

Voices of Transition presents innovative, inspirational – and concrete – solutions to the food security challenges we humans increasingly face. It explores agroforestry models in France, permaculture and TRANSITION TOWN initiatives in England and the organic farming revolution in Cuba.
By focusing on immediate profit and ignoring millennia of experience in agronomy, agroindustry is responsible for the unprecedented erosion of soils now occurring around the world. Add climate change and dwindling natural resources to the picture, and it would appear that even societies in the Global North are no longer safe from famines. Voices of Transition is a film which is optimistic but clear-sighted. It makes clear that these current and impending crises are, in fact, positive challenges!
