Power woman Lily Leahy’s PhD project in the Australian Wet Tropics investigates how rainforest species are exposed to different forest microclimates and whether that could influence their vulnerability to climate change.

Covering a mountain gradient from sea to summit, the project compares ants living on the ground in contrast to ants living in the tree canopy, and ants active in the day compared to the night. This will help us to understand how different ecological strategies might provide opportunities for ants, and other rainforest species, to respond to climate change in the future.

The climate is changing at an unprecedented rate with significant consequences for global biodiversity. Tropical species are expected to be highly sensitive to climate change.

BELLINGEN TREE PROEJCT

We are about to lauch our latest mini project. We travelled to Northern NSW here in Australia to help the Bellingen Environment Centre and the North East Forest Alliance create a range of inspirational media. We are particularly looking forward to our 360 video componet which is a very new tool to use for inspirationa and educatioanl content.

Tarkine Conservation Camp What an amazing week! We've just returned from the beautiful Tarkine Rainforest of Northwestern Tasmania. We were up there helping the Bob Brown Foundation setup this year's Conservation Camp observing logging operations in old growth pristine forests.

360 Video Project
 
 

THE TREE PROJECTS - UPDATE 18-01-2018
We spent last week filming a 360 video project in Tasmania's beautiful Tarkine Rainforest with Crow's Nest Media for the Bob Brown Foundation which will be shown later in the year. It was so good to use this amazing camera an Insta360 Pro which shoots 8K 360 degree video with 7 lenses. While it took us 2 days to get the camera rigged into the tree it only took 3 takes at the 5 minute continuous shot to get it right. Thanks to Sail Video System for the extra cool 3rd Person View camera mount www.sailvideosystem.comit worked a treat!
