Focusing on the Western Australian Government’s decision in January of 2014 to hunt and kill the white shark, a protected species in Australia, filmmaker Skyler Thomas visits Australia, South Africa, and New Zealand to learn more about the shark culling practices in each of those locations. Interviewing scientists, politicians, surfers, and activists, Great White Lies thoroughly examines the history of shark culling and ultimately asks the question, “Is this really about human safety or is something else taking place here?”

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.

THIN ICE: The Inside Story of Climate Science

$69.00$495.00

0
In recent years climate science has come under increasing attack, so concerned geologist Simon Lamb grabbed his camera and set out to explore the inside story of climate research. For over three years he followed scientists from a wide range of disciplines at work in the Arctic, Antarctic, Southern Ocean, New Zealand, Europe and the United States.
They talk about their work, their hopes and fears with a rare candor and directness, resulting in an intimate portrait of the global community of researchers racing to understand our planet’s changing climate and provide a compelling case for rising CO2 as the main cause.

Sand Wars is a surprising investigation into one of the most consumed natural resources on the planet. Due to the high demand for sand, the planet’s reserves are being threatened. Three-quarters of the world’s beaches are in decline and bound to disappear as victims of erosion, or of sand smuggling. Triggered by building construction, smuggling bands, or “sand mafias,” plunder beaches and rivers for this highly prized commodity. Sand Wars will take us around the world to witness this new gold rush firsthand.

The third largest freshwater lake on the planet has been invaded by numerous exotic species over the last century. “Lake Invaders: The Fight For Lake Huron” is a documentary which explores the threat to Lake Huron’s ecosystem and the innovative solutions employed by biologists. Biologists from around the Great Lakes describe invaders such as the sea lamprey, alewife, zebra mussel, quagga mussel, goby, and killer amphipod. They describe the damage caused by these invaders and efforts to manage Lake Huron’s ecosystem and multi-million dollar fisheries. The film also follows DNR biologists out on the lake for their annual survey of fish populations.

SHARKS: Stewards of the Reef

$20.00$69.00

This film examines escalating threats to shark population including habitat destruction of reef ecosystems and over fishing that are causing Pacific reef shark populations to plummet. It examines the most brutal assault threatening shark abundance: that of finning sharks for shark fin soup. Compelling interviews with leading marine biologists and conservationists reveal these driving forces behind the drastic reduction of many shark populations.

CROWN OF THORNS STARFISH: Monster From the Shallows

The mystery of one of the most efficient eating and breeding machines in nature. This starfish eats only one thing – coral. It has already reached uncontrollable numbers over a large part of the Great Barrier Reef. Also under impact from global warming and coral bleaching, this diverse and delicate reef ecosystem is under extreme pressure.

The Dangerous Archipelago: Sea Kayaking French Polynesia

$20.00$40.00

Kayaking here provided a daily opportunity for absolute disorientation in an idyllic and wild setting, both challenging and beautiful. We visited both the inhabited and uninhabited, exploring the health of the reefs and the lives of the people who live and depend on these most-remote atolls. From Shark City in the giant lagoon of Rangiroa, to Toau (population 10), to Fakarava where we camped for days on spits of sand. Along the way we dove for pearls, spearfished and cracked open coconuts for milk and meat. We also discovered that a way of life, both culturally and environmentally, is at great risk here in paradise.

INTO THE ALTIPLANO # 1: Sea Kayaking Argentina, Bolivia & Chile

$20.00$40.00

We went to South America’s Altiplano, the mountainous desert region crossing the borders of Chile, Argentina and Bolivia, looking for water in the driest place on earth. We pulled kayaks behind, which sounds either Quixotic or foolhardy. During six weeks we traveled from sea level to 20,000 feet and ultimately found more than just signs of water. After all, man has scratched out a living here for more than 10,000 years, longer than anywhere else in the Western Hemisphere, suggesting there must be water out there somewhere.

THE LOST COAST OF GABON: Sea Kayaking West Africa

$20.00$40.00

Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean and stretching 40 miles into the jungled interior, we kayaked and portaged more than 200 miles around the park’s perimeter, seeing this wild country from a new and different perspective. Along the way we encountered river-swimming elephants, manatees, tarpon, surfing hippos, gorillas and more. By trip’s end it was hard to decide which were the most beautiful, and the most difficult, parts of the expedition, but it was eye opening, for us all.
