Exiled from the tropical paradise where they evolved, a tiny population of remarkable stick insects dodged extinction by hiding under a single windswept bush on a remote sea stack for 80 years. Thanks to a dedicated team of scientists they’re now living safely in captivity, but when can they go home?

Sticky tells a wonderfully positive Australian conservation success story, celebrating the persistence of life, the adventure and passion embedded in science, and the little creatures underfoot.


About the Director:

After brief careers as a croupier, archaeologist and printing press assistant, Jilli learned how to animate and has been gleefully making things move ever since. Her ambition is to tell her stories so well that people smile even on days when they think they have no smile in them.
