LEICHHARDT'S GRASSHOPPER (2min 52sec)

From the top end of Australia, former farmer Max Davidson looks after the endemic Leichhardt's Grasshopper. With its beautiful flame orange body and deep glittering blue pronotum, the spectacular insect lives its entire annual life-cycle on just one food source. When Max discovers the expected fate of the native grasshopper, it sets him on a path to revitalise the bush which is vital for the Leichhardt's continued survival.
