Dr. Jim Frazier's talk will cover a global perspective of the impact that humans have inflicted on earth and the extinction of animal life. It will cover climate change, deforestation, ocean pollution and its devastating effect on birds and other animal populations worldwide. The talk will also cover his film project titled ‘SYMPHONY OF THE EARTH’ which is an ambitious musical and wildlife feature film aimed at making a new kind of environmental global statement about the condition of our planet and its inhabitants. It shows a series of amazing contrasts between humans and animals. How both sing and dance, both show aggression, both show love, both feel pain, both laugh and both are dependent on others of their kind.  However, animals don’t destroy their environment as humans do. With its underlying theme is ‘GIVING THE EARTH A VOICE’, the film promises to be the most unusual musical extravaganza ever attempted.
