Great Forest, The
Marli Lopez-Hope, Australia, 2016, 12’
Victoria’s Toolangi State Forest is home to the world’s tallest flowering tree, some of Australia’s most endangered flora and fauna, including the critically endangered Leadbeater’s Possum, and now, to rapacious logging coupes.
As we journey through the Mountain Ash forest, from her understory to the canopy above, a plethora of interdependent species begin to emerge. At 200-years-old, giant Mountain Ash stags overlook the secretive lives of a possum the size of one’s hand, a love-struck bird that lies and a petite duo of native snails.
While devastation emerges and wildlife struggle to survive at the hands of human inflicted change, some of Australia’s most peculiar creatures have managed to adapt to a rapidly changing environment, emphasising the ray of hope that exists for the most carbon rich forest on Earth.
