“A Gentle Giant” premieres at WCFF

“A Gentle Giant” produced and directed by Mark Pearce of Balangara Films debuts as a world premiere film in New York this October. Documentary film on the giant Tasmanian freshwater lobster.
Known to grow to the size of a small dog and live to 40 years old, the giant Tasmanian freshwater lobster is the largest of its kind in the entire world, but its home is being destroyed by sediment runoff from logging. However, there is hope – Todd Walsh the
lobster man has grown up with this crayfish that gently inches its way around the northern
rivers of Australia’s southern-most island. This is his plea to protect a rare and remarkable creature.

Javan Rhinoceros population holding steady

The Javan rhinoceros, one of the world’s most endangered species, continues to persevere in its last remaining sanctuary, latest census from the Indonesia government finds a minimum of 67 individuals. The species is restricted to Ujung Kulon National Park, which is only 185 square miles, roughly the size of New York City boroughs, Queens and Brooklyn combined

The Javan Rhino was once the most widespread of all rhino species in Asia, found from Assam and Bengal (where their range would have overlapped with both the Sumatran and Indian rhinos) eastward to Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, and southwards to the Malay Peninsula and the islands of Sumatra, Java, and possibly Borneo. Today the species is only found in the western tip of the island of Java. Deforestation, human population, poaching have decimate the species.
