Locals moved to help save the Darling

A Maldon father-son team are headed to the Darling River to make a documentary film highlighting the environmental crisis impacting the iconic river system with the goal of helping to find a solution.
In making When the river runs dry, anthropologist Peter Yates and his son, filmmaker Rory McLeod hope to do their bit to help return the river to health and avert its further decline.
Peter and Rory were moved to action after seeing the recent tragic images of the mass fish kill events in the Darling River near Menindee.
“We realised that between Rory and I we have the skills to do something really powerful about this, so we just decided ‘let’s do it’,” Peter says.
In a bid to help finance their film, the intrepid local duo are raising funds via the Pozible online crowdfunding platform.
