"Mae gan y pentrefi o amgylch Cors Fochno safle diddorol o fewn y system hon, ac mae eu trigolion yn rhan o'r system... Byddwn yn gwneud ffilm gyda'r gymuned a fydd yn dod â sawl haen o brofiad unigol at ei gilydd, gyda Chors Fochno'n ganolbwynt i'r cyfan."

We will be looking at how conservation and land use have been, and are affected by the water systems surrounding Cors Fochno; the rivers, estuary, drainage works and the sea, and if/ how the local inhabitants and wildlife occupy a position within this system. We will make a film with the community that draws together many layers of individual experience, with Cors Fochno as its focus".
