What we do

Rewilding Communication

Effective communication is essential when it comes to changing people’s ways of thinking, building public support, creating positive attitudes and engaging with stakeholders as we work towards a healthier ecosystems and communities for the natural world.

The first step in any story is to highlight problems that need exposure. Once a problem is highlighted, we work, with guidance from stakeholders, conservationists, communities and NGOs to research and plan a story expedition. We work towards subjects, locations and impacts which can create a tipping point in favour of conservation.

A picture tells a thousand words. Our award-winning team started as professional wildlife & nature photographers and we still hold the view that pictorial stories are one of the most powerful ways to engage with people. From our story expeditions, we create stunning images and articles to promote and inspire change within conservation.

We use the power of film to create educational, informative and forward-thinking mini-films. Videos that capture the minds of our viewers, start with a fresh idea and storyboard. Then we handle research, the script, production, and editing. As well as working on our own mini-docs, We work with a range of fantastic organisations on commissions.

Our stories allow us to cover several conservation and educational outcomes too. Not only do we want to tell a pictorial and video story, we ensure our work can have a beneficial & lasting footprint for educational resources, talks & presentations and on-going conservation usage.

Take a look at some of our recent stories below.

Education

Educating our younger generations is key to a greener and wildlife flourished future.  That’s why in 2020, we launched Schools for Wildlife – A brand new sustainable schools initiative to bring schools, communities, and nature together.

Established as a response to the State of Nature (UK) report, Schools for Wildlife is the first of its kind sustainable schools initiative to bring schools, communities, and nature together.

Initially, Schools for Wildlife will be rolled out in 2021/22 across select pilot schools, before the initiative is launched throughout Staffordshire.

Our vision is to fuse ecology and action-based learning to protect and improve local biodiversity with four simple goals.

Campaigns

Telling the story of conservation is not always enough to evoke change. Campaigning for positive change for wildlife species, habitats and local communities to save our natural heritage, is the next step in inspiring a love for the natural world.

We ensure our campaigns allow us to cover several conservation and educational outcomes. Not only do we want to tell a pictorial and video story, we ensure our work can have a beneficial & lasting footprint. Our research, ecological value and stories are delivered to NGOs and organisations so they can, with our continued support, campaign for change.

We also use our materials to develop educational resources, talks & presentations and on-going conservation usage via our conservation solutions and initiatives.

Solutions

Conservation depends on cooperation, collaboration and education of local communities. The story that we tell emphasises the fact that we are all interconnected with nature, and part of complex bio-diverse ecosystems, connected by our living landscapes.

Our journey does not end with telling global stories to our media footprint and campaigning for change. We work within regional communities, fund and lead initiatives, help and support conservation organisations and educate about the importance of our wildlife and habitats, the struggles and joys of conservation and to pressure global policymakers to act today to save our species & habitats.

Take a look at some of the projects and outreach schemes we’re leading & supporting below.
