Panel Talks

Mark Hanlin, Director, Cinematographer & Producer of Into The Jungle in conversation with Castlemaine environmentalist, Natalie Moxham; and Professor Brendan Wintle, an ecologist who has done a great deal of work in Australia about how animals in the wild react to large scale environmental change.

Natalie Moxham Natalie is an environmentalist who has worked in solidarity with First Nations People of Australian and the people of Papua New Guinea for over 35 years. She is the principal consultant of Leanganook Yarn, providing professional services to indigenous people and their projects. Much of this work has been in and out of PNG with environment, sovereignty and conservation groups. She is the founder of Living Landscapes of Papua New Guinea – protecting biodiversity, transforming lives – an international alliance. Recently, in response to the pandemic Natalie instigated Castlemaine Commons, a weekly YouTube broadcast of locals in discussion about life in the pandemic. She lives in Castlemaine with her partner and two teenage children.

Brendan Wintle Professor of Conservation Ecology at the University of Melbourne and Director of Australia’s Threatened Species Recovery Research Hub. Working with governments and conservation organisations, he advises on policy and helps develop and test actions for preventing species extinction and recovering threatened species and ecosystems. He harbours strange obsessions with greater gliders, playing soccer (too old), tigers (AFL variety) and spider orchids.

    Hi Scott, Suzanne Vaisutis- White here from Manyana Beach NSW. After many unsuccessful attempts through different routes (e.g. Vimeo, Evenbrite, Google Chrome and In the Clouds I managed to see the entire film from the start. With the help of our amazing son- in- law and daughter. What an amazing, heartwarming and enlightening documentary. Above all the humility and persistence of the wonderful Australians and the dedicated locals. It pleads for us to know more about the current status of the project and the participants.

    Congratulations on a wonderful documentary! It would be great to see it shown on mainstream tv, abc or sbs so that as many people as possible get to see it. So good to see such an interesting and positive story about PNG. Great photography, and really captured the real PNG, people and environment. Thank you!

    Inspiring film and thoughtful discussion – thanks for screening online. Good to see some stories of ‘Hope’ and to hear of lessons learned. Still lots of work to do! It would be good to hear how people can help with this project and PNG conservation / community initiatives more broadly. The solar eg sounds great.
