Event description

The Northern Rivers Science Hub, Richmond Landcare Inc. and Inspiring Australia present:

The Message of the Lyrebird

No other bird on the planet can do what the lyrebird can do. Come on a magical journey through Australia’s native forests to understand the sophistication and complex artistry of the lyrebird, leading humanity to a deeper understanding of the natural world.

Lyrebirds hold the history of the forest in their song…but are they now singing the sad story of human encroachment?

The Message of the Lyrebird is an independent feature-length documentary, produced by Balangara Films to inform, educate, and inspire humanity around nature’s intelligence for the continuation of life, and the effects of human intervention on the environment.

Hatched as an eco-mystery meditation on the elusive lyrebird, this Australian feathery-tale takes us from Sherbrooke forest, Victoria to the New England Plateau in New South Wales via, East Gippsland, Canberra, the Blue Mountains and The Yandel’ora (also known as the Scenic Hills of Campbelltown) to meet a study group, a scientist, a lyrebird sound recordist, a lyrebird keeper, an activist and a Knowledge-Holder who, from their contrasting perspectives, illustrate the profound importance to connect with wildlife, our old-growth forests, the Earth, and The Dreaming

Directed by Mark Pearce.
