Every Living Thing - Adapting to Coastal Climates (2017)
Lloyd has worked on over ten documentary projects in Canada. He is currently researching, writing and producing a documentary media project on anthropogenic climate change in the Bay of Fundy and Gulf of Maine, entitled, Every Living Thing – Adapting to Coastal Climates.
The goal of this documentary media project is not to promote more ‘fear’ of the unknown or doomsday scenario’s, but to take participants associated with this project – along with audiences – deeper into the world of anthropogenic climate change and our understanding and response to it.
The first step in undertaking this challenge will be for the documentary filmmakers to meet with people in Canada, the United States, and indigenous territories that share the Bay of Fundy and Gulf of Maine, to seek knowledge and a better understanding of anthropogenic climate change. The people consulted will include a cross section of society – scientific, industry, fisheries, ecology, regulatory agencies, governments and many others – to find out what climate change and long term sustainability ‘really means’ to them and the communities they live, work and play in. We will also explore how they plan to adapt their personal and collective behaviors to address anthropogenic climate change – locally, regionally and globally.
But this documentary media project will not just be about humanity. We will also connect with the natural world – plants, fish, mammals, birds – that live in and along these coastal aquatic environments, to see how they are surviving in the face of dramatic anthropogenic climate change that’s under way. This will include learning about their needs – habitat, food, reproduction – in relation to human activity, to see if both can be balanced, so every living thing can sustainably survive into the future.
Only then will we be able to go deep into the world of anthropogenic climate change and humanity’s understanding and response to it in the Bay of Fundy and Gulf of Maine region.
