The Indian Ocean is projected to absorb an equivalent heat to this every second for the next entire decade. Forecasts project a 1.4 to 3 degrees Celsius rise in the sea surface temperatures between 2020 and 2100. According to a recent study, this will most likely lead to a trend towards an irreversible state of heatwave in the Indian Ocean and will also increase cyclone activity while muddling up monsoons hence escalating sea levels. For environmentally-conscious individuals, here's a compilation of documentaries to explore on DocuBay.

Nonetheless, there are anxieties about the possibility of one country going to war with another over who owns such resources. Study the above-mentioned challenging matters and see some of the technical breakthroughs of Gachet in this captivating documentary. 


In the documentary Mamody, travel with Mamody to the desolate Mahafaly plateau in the southwestern part of the island nation of Madagascar. There, Mamody uses a time-honoured form of art by carving baobabs into critical reservoirs for water.

This film by Cyrille Cornu is an evocative glance into tradition, permanence, and toughness in the face of environmental change.

Bees: The Invisible Mechanism

The documentary Bees: The Invisible Mechanism, confronts us with the precariousness of the planet’s ecosystems. Insect populations are declining because of climate change, diseases, habitat loss, and misuse of pesticides which puts in danger the fragile equilibrium within our world. Bees are the most affected by this situation since they contribute 75% of fruit and vegetable production in the form of pollination. If they continue disappearing at such accelerated rates it will lead to unprecedented disaster due to continuous decreasable population sizes.

Plastic - A Collective Suicide

Every day, our food is exposed to thousands of unknown chemicals through plastic materials that when ingested could result in hormone imbalances, cancer, or even worse physiological problems if not detected early enough. Since the 1950s, plastic growth has been astronomical pressing on whether the earth is inevitably approaching doom or it can still be rescued by changing the way things are done. Directed by Peter Charaf, this documentary sheds light on the urgent need to address the pervasive issue of plastic pollution.
