  • Cocos Island - The mysterious island in the Pacific - FULL VERSION!!

    43:16

    Unfortunately, the previously uploaded version was not complete: It aborts in minute 22. Here finally is the complete documentary.
    Have fun with it! :)

    Coconut Island protrudes from the Pacific Ocean as the peak of a lone volcano, far off the Costa Rican coast. At the end of the 18th century, the English author Robert Louis Stevenson is said to have received the inspiration for his novel „Treasure Island“ here.

    The tiny island comprises just 25 sqm² and is covered by an impenetrable jungle. Numerous streams, waterfalls and gorges epitomise the world‘s largest uninhabited rain forest island. Due to its isolation, unique flora and fauna have developed here. Today, as a national park and world natural heritage, the island is closely supervised by park rangers.

    The outstanding underwater world surrounding the island abounds with marine fauna of every description. Hardly any other destination is as well-known for its countless large fish varieties, especially hammerhead, reef and offshore sharks. The film‘s author submerged to depths up to 400 meters on board the „Deep Sea“, a modern research submarine. During the dive, he ucceeded in shooting material of rare deep sea fish and shark species, which have never before been sighted near Coconut Island.

  • Cocos island full travel guide documentary

    46:17

    The Cocos (Keeling) Islands are a remote territory of Australia in the Indian Ocean. Its 2 coral atolls comprise 27 tiny islands with white­-sand beaches, palm trees and lagoons. West Island has an airport and a visitor centre. Across the lagoon, the Home Island Museum explores the culture of the resident Cocos Malay people. To the north, the isolated Pulu Keeling National Park has bird colonies and a shipwreck.

  • The hunter of Cocos Island: The white-tip reef shark

    51:03

    With the aid of modern technology, reveal the unknown behaviour of some unusual species of shark: lemon sharks and their white-tip reef counterparts.
    Our film trip begins on the Bahamas. To be more precise: in the turquoise-blue waters of the Grand Bahama Bank, in an exactly fixed location. In the spring, 70 - 80 pregnant lemon sharks arrive here. This huge shark population was first discovered just a few years ago by shark researcher, Professor Sam Gruber.
    Many of the females are tired and rest on the seabed. Pregnant tiger sharks swim in the midst of this group. Without any protection whatsoever, our cameramen shoot their footage, surrounded by sharks and succeed in capturing images hitherto unseen.

    We continue our journey to Gainesville, Florida, to meet Gordon Hubbell, the leading shark denture expert with the world’s largest shark denture collection. He knows everything about the evolutionary history of the lemon sharks, in addition to those of the white-tip reef variety off Cocos Island, Costa Rica. Here, we encounter large schools of fish, unprecedented numbers of stingrays, as well as hammerhead sharks. However, it is the white-tip reef sharks that make the biggest impression. Their performance begins late at night. Marauding, they patrol in large groups through the reefs and hunt everything that moves. Scales and dead prey fish float above the reef - a welcoming change of diet for the ubiquitous barracudas.

    SUMMARY:
    - Socotra is so isolated that there are just a few roads for its 40,000 inhabitants. It’s also host to 800 rare species of flora and fauna, a third of which are found nowhere else on Earth.
    - Diego Garcia is located over 1,000 miles south of India, isolated in the middle of the Indian Ocean. It is occupied by the US military, who leased it from the UK. The island is home to 2,000 military personnel, communication facilities, combat vessels, and 12,000-ft runways that can hold large aircraft.
    - The Eye, or El Ojo de la Tierra in Spanish, is a strange island that moves and rotates on its own axis. The Eye is fully circular, sits in a circle of water, and is located between the cities of Campana and Zarate in Argentina.
    - Isla Bermeja is shown on maps from the 18th and 19th centuries, but the island was not found in 1996 when Mexico conducted surveys. Nor was it located in an extensive study in 2009. Though it is clearly marked on maps, the island is currently nowhere to be found.
    - Okunoshima is a small island nestled in the Inland Sea of Japan. The island is small enough that it can be explored in under 2 hours. It’s grassy, and there’s a beach resort. But the best part of this island is the inhabitants: hundreds of rabbits roam the island.
    - This island has the highest concentration of venomous snakes in the world! For that reason, it is known as Snake Island. It hosts a population of over 2,000 lancehead vipers, one of the most dangerous species of snake.
    - Because of its macabre past, Poveglia is thought to be Italy’s most haunted island. This is a place for only the most hardcore ghost hunters and people who love a good horror story.
    - Island of Dolls is one of the creepiest places you can imagine! Though it was never meant to be a tourist attraction, hundreds of people visit the place each year.

  • Cocos Island: Mystery of the Pacific Ocean | Free Documentary Nature

    43:16

    Cocos Island protrudes from the Pacific Ocean - a lone volcano peeking out of the blue grey waters, off the Costa Rican coast. The island has many similarities with the fictional Treasure Island, penned by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, himself an intrepid traveler. Maybe he was inspired by tales of Cocos Island as he never went there himself. The tiny island is just 25 sqm2 and covered by an impenetrable jungle of streams, waterfalls and gorges, making it the world's largest uninhabited island rainforest. Because it is so isolated, unique flora and fauna flourish. Today, as a national park and world natural heritage, park rangers guard and oversee the entire island so it may hopefully remain a treasure for decades and centuries to come.

  • Indo-Pacific: The world of the Sulu Sea

    50:28

    The heart of the Indo-Pacific region, the Sulu sea, separates the north-ern coast of Borneo and the west coast of the Philippines. The coasts of the relatively small ocean, are home to inhabitants with a colourful culture and abundant animal life invites nature lovers for a visit. The island of Omadal is home of the Bajau. This nomadic tribe lives on wooden vessels or ashore in pile-dwellings. Harvesting seaweed generates them the money that is needed to buy all other goods on the market.
    The underwater world of the Sulu sea is dominated by intact colourful reefs. Beautiful coloured mantis shrimps hunt with spears or their legs. Harlequin prawns always hold a starfish in standby to eat of. The Mimic Oktopus, a squid, camouflages himself as a flounder or as a starfish. Only rarely will he be seen in his real shape, as an octopus.

    The National territory of the Philippines covers 7000 islands, build from volcanic activities. The Mt. Pinatobo was considered to be extinct. But it just was dormant. When he woke up in 1991, the most powerful eruption of the 20th Century buried whole areas underneath his volcanic ashes. At the last location of this journey the camera crew got goose-flesh thanks to a very special tradition of the Ibanoi people on the island of Luzon. The team was allowed to film how these natives mummify those who passed away and bury them in tiny wood coffins.

  • The Mysterious Easter Island - What they Dont Want You To Know!

    52:20

    Could an unknown ancient society have created incredible structures on this island 11.000 years prior to the Polynesians going there? These are just a few of the questions that deserve proper academic response. Who were these people and why did their huge sculptures gaze to the heavens?

  • Costa Rica: The South American Paradise

    44:40

    Whoever wants to experience South America as a nature paradise in a small area, should explore Costa Rica. Almost half of the country is covered by rain forest. Numerous animal species are to be found here like the White faced Capuchin, colourful parrots like the Macaw, Veruga Parakeets and Tapirs.

    Also lizards from primeval times have their habitat in this region of the planet. The small central American nation not only fascinates with a rich fauna and flora but also with a wonder world under water. Insights into the fascinating world of the jungle show examples like the epiphytes that make their way to the sky at the expense of her host plant.

    A view into the culture of the Indian inhabitants of the rain forest of course does not come too briefly either. A diving excursion through the ocean waters of Cocos Island is the highlight of the journey. The spectator will get flesh crawl while watching hundreds of dangerous hammerhead sharks gliding past the camera.

  • Mysterious Oceanic Oases - Hotspots of life

    45:48

    Countless marine animals frolic on the steep slopes of underwater volcanoes. In many cases, several are rare species not found elsewhere. This is in part due to the fact that plankton clings to the wall and provides the fish with food in abundance. This documentary shows several of these oases and also examines the impact dive tourism has and whether preventive measures can help to maintain them.
    Nature and underwater filmmaker Rolf Möltgen undertakes dives into the mysterious underwater mountain landscapes with marine scientists from all corners of the globe. This journey takes us to Mexico, to snappers, white-tip reef sharks, Galapagos sharks and giant mantas. We visit the Maldives, Colombia and Costa Rica, where the team documents rare species such as deep sea burbots, small tooth sand tiger and dogfish sharks, in depths of more than 300 metres.
    The eerie underwater mountain world proves: everyone plays a part in the network of life. Thanks to consistent protective regulations, it has been possible to retain the underwater diversity - especially in the unique oases of the high seas.

  • The worlds weirdest creatures

    51:56

    Nature has many weird creatures to offer and often these animals fascinate us the most. There are ants in Australia's outback that use specialised workers as living honey pots.

    In Africa in the endless Bangweulu wetlands of Zambia the shoebill is on the hunt for fish, a bird that definitely lives up to its name.

    Finally in the Brazilian rainforests lurk gruesome river monsters in the Amazon abyss that send shivers down the spine of even the most experienced divers.

    But there are also intense human-animal-relationships like the close bond between a German diver and a dolphin female who explore the Atlantic off the coast of Ireland, or the easy rider in California who has taken care of an African elephant bull for more than 25 years.

    Weird! is a breath-taking journey to visit animals around the globe who are somehow different.

    I want our youth to be able to stand on their own two feet and take responsibility in the Cocos Islands,, explains island elder Cree Bin Haig. If this doesn't happen, it's as if we have gone back to being under colonial rule. 28 years ago, Malay elders negotiated the islands' integration with Australia based on promises that they would take ownership of their land and have their customs respected. Today, the islands remain blighted by external influence and many feel short-changed. This is the homeland of the Cocos Islanders, not the homeland of the whites, declares former government adviser Dick Whittington. But the whites have the power here. It's not right. It's not fair.

  • Sulu Sea: A colorful Paradise in the Indo-Pacific

    50:28

    The heart of the Indo-Pacific region, the Sulu sea, separates the north-ern coast of Borneo and the west coast of the Philippines. The coasts of the relatively small ocean, are home to inhabitants with a colourful culture and abundant animal life invites nature lovers for a visit. The island of Omadal is home of the Bajau. This nomadic tribe lives on wooden vessels or ashore in pile-dwellings. Harvesting seaweed generates them the money that is needed to buy all other goods on the market.
    The underwater world of the Sulu sea is dominated by intact colourful reefs. Beautiful coloured mantis shrimps hunt with spears or their legs. Harlequin prawns always hold a starfish in standby to eat of. The Mimic Oktopus, a squid, camouflages himself as a flounder or as a starfish. Only rarely will he be seen in his real shape, as an octopus.

    The National territory of the Philippines covers 7000 islands, build from volcanic activities. The Mt. Pinatobo was considered to be extinct. But it just was dormant. When he woke up in 1991, the most powerful eruption of the 20th Century buried whole areas underneath his volcanic ashes. At the last location of this journey the camera crew got goose-flesh thanks to a very special tradition of the Ibanoi people on the island of Luzon. The team was allowed to film how these natives mummify those who passed away and bury them in tiny wood coffins.

    Cocos Island - Guardians of our Earth

    Information

    Cocos Island
    The scenes & photos shown in the short docu-movie are taken on and around the Cocos Island, 494 km off the coast of Costa Rica, in November 2019.
    The island is one of the most remote places on the planet without inhabitants except for national park rangers.
    Centuries after pirates, who were the last inhabitants, left the island it became a national park in 1978. This was to prevent visits from treasure hunters and potential ecological damage to the wildlife.
    Only divers can reach the historical treasure Island onboard a liveaboard ship from Costa Rica. Cocos Island is famous for its rich underwater wildlife and is now listed, since 1997, as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Homage
    The movie is a homage to our earth & the German shaman & musician Kräutercharly, who passed away in January 2020.
    The message of his most famous song Hüter unserer Erde (translated Guardians of our Earth) is performed by his project Derwisch Wolkengeist & is not only good for remote paradises like Cocos Island but can be a guide for all people on our planet.

    The German song regarding us humans as guardians of nature with the task to protect our environment is translated in subtitles to spread & clarify the worldwide context.
    The challenge of working together as humankind to advance efforts not to exploit our earth is present like never before.
    Filmed, photographed, arranged & edited by Heiko Meder from Frysch Media.

    Credits
    Thanks to Andrew Hawker for subtitles & Michael Dean Jordan from Mijo-Music for mastering the song recorded 2013 at Marco Borns Studio.

    Cocos Island – Hüter der Erde

    Kokosinsel (Cocos Island)
    Die Aufnahmen im Kurzdokufilm sind im November 2019 auf und um die Kokosinsel entstanden. Diese gehört zu Costa Rica und liegt 494 km von der Küste entfernt im Pazifik.
    Die Insel ist eine der verborgensten Plätze unseres Planeten. Außer den Nationalpark Hütern unbewohnt seit vor Jahrhunderten die Piraten die Kokosinsel verlassen hatten.
    Sie wurde 1978 zum Nationalpark erklärt um Schatzsucher, die nach den Schätzen der Piraten gruben, zu verbannen und die einzigartige Natur und Tierwelt zu schützen.
    Seither können nur Taucher von Costa Rica aus zur Insel fahren und auf dem Schiff wohnen.
    Die Kokosinseln sind berühmt für die reiche Unterwasserwelt und sind seit 1997 UNSECO Weltkulturerbe.

    Hommage
    Der Film ist unserer Erde sowie dem deutschen Schamanen Kräutercharly gewidmet, der im Januar 2020 verstarb. Die Botschaft seines bekanntesten Songs „Hüter unserer Erde“ ist von seinem Projekt „Derwisch Wolkengeist“ eingespielt und nicht nur für solch einen unberührten Ort wie die Kokosinsel zutreffend, sondern könnte ein Leitfaden für alle Menschen unseres Planeten sein.
    Der deutschsprachige Song, der uns Menschen auffordert als Hüter & Bewahrer der Natur zu agieren, ist mit englischen Untertiteln versehen, um weltweit verstanden werden zu können sowie den globalen Kontext zu betonen.
    Die Herausforderung als Menschheit zusammen zu wirken, um die Ausbeutung der Natur einzudämmen ist in diesen Zeiten so wichtig wie nie zuvor.

    Mein Dank geht an Andrew Hawker für die Untertitel & Michael Dean Jordan von Mijo-Music für das Mastering des Songs, der 2013 in Marco Borns Studio aufgenommen wurde.
    Zu guter Letzt gilt mein Dank der großartigen Zusammenarbeit mit meinem Reisebüro WWT Worldwide Tickets aus meiner Stadt Mainz, das mich immer unterstützt und die Reise zur Kokosinsel kurzfristig möglich gemacht hat.

  • History of Buried Treasure - Full Documentary

    41:31

    A buried treasure is an important part of the popular beliefs surrounding pirates and Old West outlaws. According to popular conception, criminals and others often buried their stolen fortunes in remote places, intending to return for them later, often with the use of treasure maps. Pirate treasure- In reality, pirates burying treasure was rare: the only pirate known to have buried treasure was William Kidd, who is believed to have buried at least some of his wealth on Long Island before sailing into New York City. Kidd had originally been commissioned as a privateer for England, but his behavior had strayed into outright piracy, and he hoped that his treasure could serve as a bargaining chip in negotiations to avoid punishment. His bid was unsuccessful, however, and Kidd was hanged as a pirate.

    In English fiction there are three well-known stories that helped to popularize the myth of buried pirate treasure: Wolfert Webber (1824) by Washington Irving, The Gold-Bug (1843) by Edgar Allan Poe and Treasure Island (1883) by Robert Louis Stevenson. They differ widely in plot and literary treatment but are blood kin from the common ancestor of the William Kidd legend. David Cordingly states that The effect of Treasure Island on our perception of pirates cannot be overestimated, and says the idea of treasure maps leading to buried treasure is an entirely fictional device. Stevenson's Treasure Island was directly influenced by Irving's Wolfert Webber, Stevenson saying in his preface It is my debt to Washington Irving that exercises my conscience, and justly so, for I believe plagiarism was rarely carried farther... the whole inner spirit and a good deal of the material detail of my first chapters... were the property of Washington Irving.

    In 1911, American author Ralph D. Paine conducted a survey of all known or purported stories of buried treasure and published them in The Book of Buried Treasure. He found a common trait in all the stories: there was always a lone survivor of a piratical crew who somehow preserved a chart showing where the treasure was buried, but unable to return himself, he transfers the map or information to a friend or shipmate, usually on his deathbed. This person would then go search in vain for the treasure, but not before transferring the legend down to another hapless seeker.

    Famous and notorious cases

    The Roman historian Dio Cassius says that, in the early 2nd century, the Dacian king Decebalus had changed the course of river Sargetia and buried tons of gold and silver in the river bed. Later he ordered the river to be restored and the slaves involved in the works to be executed. However one of his nobles revealed its location to the Romans. The Byzantine historian Jordanes tells a similar story of the burial of the Visigoth king Alaric I and his treasure under the river Busento in 410. The burial places of the Khazar kings (qoruq) and other inner Asian people were also under a rerouted river.

    There are a number of reports of supposed buried pirate treasure that surfaced much earlier than these works, which indicates that at least the idea was around for more than a century before those stories were published. For example, extensive excavation has taken place on Oak Island (in Nova Scotia) since 1795 in the belief that one or more pirate captains had stashed large amounts of loot there. These excavations were said to have been prompted by still older legends of buried pirate treasure in the area. No treasure has ever been reported to be found.

    The Treasure of Lima is a supposed buried treasure on Cocos Island in the Pacific left there by pirates. The treasure, estimated to be worth £160 million, was stolen by British Captain William Thompson in 1820 after he was entrusted to transport it from Peru to Mexico

    The only authenticated treasure chest in the United States, once owned by Thomas Tew, is kept at the Pirate Soul Museum in St Augustine, Florida.

    Closer to modern times, the notorious drug lord, Pablo Escobar buried large sums of money in the form of US currency across Colombia. While a lot of it has been retrieved, large portions still remain buried.

    Former corsair turned pirate, Olivier Levasseur known as The Buzzard, is known to have hidden one of the biggest treasures in pirate history, estimated at over 4.5 billion euros, and leaving a cryptogram (with templar alphabet) behind with its whereabouts.

    SYNOPSIS:

    Australia's Forgotten Islands (Chemical Media, 2018), is a 47-minute documentary exploring some significant issues facing the people of the Australian External Territory of the Cocos (Keeling) Islands in the Indian Ocean. The islands were originally settled in the 1820s by private merchants, who imported labourers from across South East Asia to work on coconut plantations. Although annexed by the British Empire and later transferred to Australia, the islands were effectively ruled by a single Scottish family for over 150 years.

    In 1984, the islanders ended this colonial arrangement by voting to fully integrate with Australia, paving the way for the Cocos Islands to become an Australian External territory. Only two of the 27 islands that make up the Cocos archipelago are inhabited – and they are home to two starkly different communities. West Island has a mostly transient population of contract workers, military personnel and voluntary castaways from the Australian mainland who enjoy all the benefits of sun, sea and duty-free living. While Home Island has a permanent Malay-speaking Muslim population, many of whom are descended from the labourers imported to work on the islands’ coconut plantations nearly two hundred years ago.

    The film explores two main issues:

    • how representatives from both communities are reconciling their differences and asserting their rights as the original inhabitants of the islands to ensure they have a voice in discussions about the islands' future; and
    • the implications and consequences of an expanded Australian military presence on the islands

    Both issues need to be resolved in Canberra.

    This film allows students to explore these issues by:

    • becoming 'witnesses' who present the evidence in the film to an inquiry; and
    • by being the 'jury' who has to make decisions based on this evidence. In doing so they will explore the colonial history and contemporary character of this unique and little known part of Australia.

  • 212-The Hunt for the Treasure of Lima

    32:12

    Cocos Island, in the eastern Pacific, is rumored to hold buried treasure worth millions of dollars, but centuries of searching has failed to discover it. Most treasure hunters give up after a few days, but one German sailor spent 17 years in an increasingly obsessive search. In this week's episode of the Futility Closet podcast we'll follow August Gissler on his hunt for the Treasure of Lima.

    We'll also marvel at names and puzzle over an undead corpse.

    Intro:

    In 1875, Frederick Law Olmsted warned his son of the dangers of unchecked pussycats.

    Dogs were formerly so common at church services that dog whippers were employed to manage them.

Visitors to the resort can snorkel, dive, kayak, dolphin watch, parasail, jet ski and bike. The west side is public land, part of the Territorial Park System. Ferries run to Merizo, Guam.
    During the Spanish times, the island was owned by Don Ignacio Mendiola Dela Cruz (Tu'an). In the late 1920s, the US Government acquired ⅔ of the island via Eminent Domain. In the mid-1930s Don Ignacio sold the remaining ⅓ to a Businessman named Gottwald. A Coast Guard long-range navigation station was built and operated on Cocos Island from 1944-1963. In the late 80's to early 90's, the US Govt. returned the larger portion of the island to the Guam Government, who then turned it into a Park.

    Military tests on soil from Cocos Island in late 2005 showed levels of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) contamination 4,900 times higher than the federally recommended level. Tests on twelve species of fish in the lagoon showed all but one of those species had high levels of PCBs. One had 265 times the acceptable level. The contamination most likely originated from transformers and other electrical equipment at the Coast Guard station, but was not tested for earlier.
    Officials from the Guam Environmental Protection Agency, Guam Department of Public Health and Social Services, and the Coast Guard announced their findings on 20 February 2006 and warned people not to eat fish caught in the lagoon. (Ref: Wikipedia)

    The Cocos (Keeling) Islands have been an important staging post for flights across the Indian Ocean between Australia, Asia, Africa and Europe. We forget these days when airliners cross oceans, how it used to be.
