Stuck on a Rock
This was screened live at the Earth Optimism Film Festival at 8pm on Sunday 28 March.
When this was screened at Earth Optimism 2021, it was followed by a presentation and a live Q&A.
The short presentation was by Rohan Cleave (a zookeeper at Melbourne Zoo) who talked more in depth about the current Lord Howe stick insect conservation programme, including their planned release onto Lord Howe Island now the rats are gone. The evening was then wrapped up with a live Q&A. Asher Flatt (the director of this documentary) joined Rohan to answer your questions in a session chaired by Andrew Balmford.
NB: Only the question and answer session is available on catch up, but the full Stuck on a Rock documentary can be rented/purchased on Amazon Prime.
