The Unnatural History of the Kakapo

The Unnatural History of the Kakapo DVDOnce thought extinct, the Kakapo are now the world's rarest and strangest wild parrot -- a flightless, nocturnal bird with an odd mating call. With a lifespan up to 120 years, the Kakapo was one of the most abundant birds on New Zealand until humans began a long process of altering the balance of the country's ecosystems. Now the world's last remaining Kakapo population in the world lives on a remote island and is plagued by a curse that could be their end. The normally guarded conservation project that protects the bird opened its doors to give the filmmaker unprecedented access to the Kakapo Recovery Program. In the style of an adventure movie, the film follows the efforts of a group of scientists and rangers who face difficult challenges in their pioneering efforts to keep alive a highly endangered species with a very low number of surviving members.

Tales of the San Joaquin: A RIVER RESTORED

Tales of the San Joaquin Restored DVDPre-Order Now. Street Date March 1, 2011 For sixty years, parts of the 350-mile San Joaquin River have been turned into a perpetual desert by water diversion for farming, thus destroying habitat for thousands of migrating salmon.

The film is a glowing and inspiring portrait of the San Joaquin River, from its original source in the Sierra Nevada Mountains to its eventual merging with the Sacramento River and into the San Francisco Bay.

What Would Darwin ThinkWhat Would Darwin Think?
Man vs. Nature in the Galapagos

After Charles Darwin first visited the island archipelago of Galapagos in 1839, it took him another twenty years to decipher the scene he’d witnessed, the most perfectly preserved biodiversity on the planet. His theory of evolution – published 150 years ago – pulled back the curtain on a debate that had been simmering for years, and still percolates.

Today Darwin would be surprised by the tourist mecca Galapagos has become; 200,000 visitors a year, 40,000 permanent residents. The impact on the most unique collection of endemic wildlife in the world has been heavy; too many people bringing too many of their ways (and invasive species) from the outside world threatening the future of this one-of-a-kind place. What would Darwin think of how Galapagos has evolved in the twenty-first century?
