Australia; South Australia, Australia; Bairnsdale, Victoria, Australia
Initially I would like to return to the regions that I'd originally covered in January of 2020, one year later to record the recovery and regrowth of land, animals and nature and lives so terribly destroyed to show hope and renewal after such major trauma.
However in light of the current Covid-19 circumstances in many of these areas most people have barely had a chance to even begin to get their lives back together when all of a sudden they find themselves in lockdown without homes to isolate to. Unfortunately their story of this awful occurrence has been overshadowed by the epidemic.
I would allocate the money to spending time returning to these areas as soon as I can be safely able to return after the lockdown is lifted, to show the circumstances that they have had to isolate to and how they have been supported or not through this time.
I would still return again, pending restrictions, in 2021 to create a story on the recovery of the people and the wildlife and nature so dramatically affected by both major events.
