Description

The Inner South Brisbane Wilderness Society volunteer group invite you to join us for a film screening: Restoring Earth! Hurry and grab a ticket before we sell out!

Restoring Earth - Documentary Trailer

Join us for an evening of film & discussion with guest speakers Dr Martin Taylor, Protected Areas and Conservation Science Manager at WWF Australia, Revel Pointon from the EDO and members of the Inner South Wilderness Society based around the massive deforestation crisis in Queensland.

The film Restoring Earth (2016) by James Sherwood and Danielle Ryan shows how farmers can transform the old destructive farming techniques and integrate a more holistic approach to increase profitability and quality of the produce. The film brings together farmers, foodies and chefs creating a more sustainable future for all. Hear about the work we are doing with the WWF and satellite imagery to detect illegal clearing, see what we have achieved to date and learn what else we are doing right now.

Deforestation is Australia’s biggest unseen environmental crisis… and it’s killing our koalas

Australia is now second behind Indonesia for biodiversity loss on the global list, we are the ONLY deforestation hotspot in the developed world! With 25% of our mammal species under threat, Australia is rapidly losing its world-famous biodiversity with more than 1,700 species now formally recognised as being in danger of extinction.

WWF-Australia estimates pristine native forest clearing of 395,000 Ha in Queensland directly killed 45 million native mammals, birds and reptiles in 2016. This excludes indirect losses (eg aquatic animals whose habitats are degraded by sediment pollution from clearing, loss of shade, altered stream hydrology), animals killed during repeat clearing of immature bushland and ongoing losses of animals due to the legacy fragmentation and degradation effects of past clearing.

Despite the pride many Australians feel in our unique natural heritage (and the billions of dollars made from nature-based tourism) the amount of federal funding for biodiversity conservation has dropped by 37% since 2013. With an upcoming election we need to make our voices heard loud and clear - please come along & support us, extinction is forever.
