Green Collar Productions is Directed by Stacey Chilcott, whose initial studies in aquatic science led her to Mexico’s Riviera Maya, part of the Yucatan Peninsula – the largest subterranean river system in the world. The threats to the river system from rampant development inspired Stacey to produce her own documentary.
After a long consultation and development period with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), Stacey then influenced Foreign Correspondent to produce a report on the subject, ‘The Veins of the Earth’, of which she is credited as the Initial Researcher. Stacey subsequently traveled to Perth to investigate aquatic cave ecology in Margaret River through an Honours research project. Her study contributed to the National Climate Change Research Facility (NCCARF)s risk assessment and decision-making framework for the management of groundwater dependent ecosystems.
She then pursued postgraduate studies in Sustainable Development, returning to Mexico to produce and direct a remake of her original documentary, ‘The Future of the Riviera Maya’. She hopes these films will inspire people to continue taking action to conserve our vital ecosystems.
