Maria Timon from the Pacific Island of Kiribati discusses how climate change is not only a major environmental issue, but also an issue of human rights. Maria is part of the Pacific Calling Project run by the Edmond Rice Centre, which aims to build awareness within Australian communities about what is happening to our pacific neighbours. The video was made in association with the Edmund Rice Centre (www.erc.org.au/pcp).
Maria Timon from Kiribati presented 3 video clips at the Pacific Calling Partnership/Climate Action Network Australia side event at the UNFCCC COP 15 in Copenhagen on the 11th of December, 2009. This was the first clip.
A short set of video clips of calling male Pacific Chorus Frogs (Pseudacris regilla). These videos were taken in late February 2009 in ponds in Napa Co., California. Pacific Chorus Frogs (also called Pacific Tree Frogs) are one of the most abundant frogs on the west coast of North America. The males make their loud 'Kreeck-eck' call to attract female frogs.

For 10 years, the Pacific Calling Partnership, coordinated by the Edmund Rice Centre, has been working with our neighbours in the Pacific to raise awareness about the impact of climate change on low-lying islands. Here is a collection of memories from the past decade.
The Pacific Calling Partnership (PCP) is a group that advocates on behalf of, and in partnership with low-lying, low income, vulnerable Pacific Island nations that are being effected by dangerous climate change. PCP is hosting a public workshop at the University of Sydney, on Thursday May 16 at 6pm, on the issues of climate justice, human development and the effects of climate change on nations such as Kiribati and Tuvalu.

An Island Calling is a truly "post-colonial" tale that revolves around a brutal double murder of a gay male couple, one of who was a human rights worker, in Fiji in mid-2001. Through exploring the incident's context, this film reveals deep historical, social and political currents that circulate throughout the Pacific. However, the documentary is, as much, an intimate story of two very different families. Directed by Annie Goldson, an Occasional Production. If you are living in NZ you can watch this film at the Cinema showcase (March 2008 - May 2008), click here for more information. http://www.worldcinemashowcase.co.nz To get a copy of the film, or to find out when it will be screening in your country get in touch with Occasional Productions: http://www.op.co.nz/ end...
