Use of Drones to Monitor Minesite Restoration Projects

Octagonal Hall, WA Wildflowers Eastern Hills Branch, 52 McGlew Rd, Glen Forrest WA 6071, Australia

Wildflower Society monthly meeting.

Monitoring mine site restoration efforts is crucial as it provides early warning of potential restoration failures, which greatly improves the chances of restoring the environment in a timely manner. Drones are a cheap, easy to operate means of surveying large areas in a short amount of time. Able to be outfitted with a variety of sensors, do they represent the future of aerial monitoring of flora, fauna, and geological features? Todd Buters will present the results of his research.

ALBATROSS is a powerful visual journey into the heart of a gut-wrenching environmental tragedy. On Midway island, in the remote North Pacific Ocean, tens of thousands of Laysan albatross chicks lie dead on the ground, their bodies filled with plastic. ALBATROSS takes us on a journey, as we face this tragedy we must also confront our own complicity head on.

He has generously made this film available to Sea Shepherd Australia to host as a FREE screening.

The Raw Kitchen, 181A High St, Fremantle WA 6160, Australia

Our oceans are drowning with 150 million tons of plastic pollution. This is a problem because plastic never goes away, harming our marine life and people. But we’re not too late. Bottle for Botol runs an education program that helps young people combat plastic pollution and move away from single-use plastics. For good.

The Raw Kitchen and YogaLab have kindly offered their studio space to display a screening of Blue The Film. All funds raised will be donated to Bottle for Botol.

BLUE takes us on a provocative journey into the ocean realm, witnessing a critical moment in time when the marine world is on a precipice. Featuring passionate advocates for ocean preservation, BLUE takes us into their world where the story of our changing ocean is unfolding. We meet those who are defending habitats, campaigning for smarter fishing, combating marine pollution and fighting for the protection of keystone species.

This feature documentary comes at a time when we are making critical decisions that will decide the legacy we leave for generations to come.

BLUE shows us there is a way forward and the time to act is now.
