Kuark Forest Flim Launch

We launched our beautiful new film "Saving Kuark" at Bar 303 in Northcote this week. The film by Melbourne based cinematographer David Franjic was shot at the Camp Kuark citizen science camp in March this year and tells the story of our community based citizen science program in the Kuark forest. Watch the film here



Speakers at the film launch included ecologist, Damien Cook who spoke about the ecological values of Kuark forest and the unique rainforest and fauna species that call it home.

Prominent Environmental Lawyer, Vanessa Bleyer spoke about the value of community based campaigns and the use of citizen science data collection to hold the government and VicForests accountable to environmental protection laws. Vanessa discussed the Supreme Court Case concerning the protection of Owl habitat, that has currently put logging in Kuark on hold thanks to GECOs citizen science work and Environment East Gippsland's legal action.
