How advertisers can contribute to conservation through the Lion's Share Fund

Monday, 2 March 2020 - 6:00pm to 6:30pm

Last Steptember, this show focussed on a research paper titled 'The Paradoxical Extinction of the Most Charismatic Animals', which noted that the population of virtual animals in our world was giving people a mistaken impression about the real number of those animals in the wild. One of the paper's concluding suggestions was that advertisers using animal images should contribute funds towards their conservation. A Sydney-based production company has now helped create exactly such an initiative. 

Executive producer and founder of FINCH Rob Galluzo, who, along with filmmaker Christopher Nelius, co-founded The Lion's Share Fund speaks to Reema Rattan and a guest from the previous show on the topic, Stephen Downes, about how idea evolved and how the initiative works.

Monday 6:00pm to 6:30pm
This show casts a critical eye on the myriad ways in which we communicate with each other in our increasingly interconnected, multi-media platform world. Each week we mix down the who, the what, the where, and the how of particular communication events, messages, trends and technologies, and then consider: what impacts and what consequences?
