There are many conservation and environmental issues that could be tackled effectively if only the people involved were informed or educated about the causes and solutions that could make a difference.

International Elephant Film Festival Celebrates World’s Best Elephant Films

The Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival and the Secretariat of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) teamed up in organizing an International Elephant Film Festival to raise global awareness of the various challenges facing the African and Asian elephants, as a highlight of UN World Wildlife Day on 3 March.

Congratulations to all of the finalists and category winners, and thank you for making this such a memorable World Wildlife Day."

The high-level celebration at UN Headquarters attracted international diplomats and policy-makers as well as conservation, NGO & business partners and filmmakers and included UNEP Goodwill Ambassador/model Gisele Bündchen and Actress/Producer Kristin Davis, whose film Gardeners of Eden won the Elephant Hero category.

Wildlife-film.com says very well done to all winners, with special congratulations to members Afriscreen Films & Ammonite for their very well-deserved wins! When congratulated on Twitter, Afriscreen said "The elephants deserve it!" - We say, so true.

Winners were announced at a high level event marking the global celebration of World Wildlife Day at UN Headquarters in New York on 3 March 2016. Winning and finalist films will be showcased extensively throughout the world, through local screening events and broadcasts.

“These amazing films speak eloquently to the importance of saving elephants while are still able to do so,” said Jackson Hole Festival’s Executive Director, Lisa Samford. “We’re eager to partner with organizations around the world to raise local awareness and engagement through free public screenings and events.”

Samford drew particular attention to the decades-long anthology documenting Echo, the matriarch of Amboseli and her family, noting that the researchers who studied this herd and the filmmakers who told their story forever changed how the world would see wild African elephants.

The organizers are particularly grateful to the final judges for their commitment of time:

Conservation documentary exploring the struggle to coexist in the world's top biodiversity hot spot.

Team Candiru is a small, award winning production company based in Bristol. After producing documentary films about the UK's spiders, bees and other invertebrates, we are now turning our attention to conservation in the modern world. These are dark times for conservation. Year after year we are experiencing record losses in biodiversity, despite the tireless efforts of many individuals and organisations. But it doesn't have to be this way. Man and nature can co-exist, and we want to make a film that proves this - at a time and in a place where the stakes could not be higher. Your support will allow us to show the world that there is hope for us all.

Support To Catch a Macaw with Angela Prochilo & César Leite

A film by Angela Prochilo about biologist Erica Pacífico and her brave efforts to protect the Lear's Macaw in Brazil. César Leite is the cameraman and fixer.

To protect these rare endangered birds facing threats such as poaching and habitat loss, Erica and her team will go on a challenging mission to microchip Lear's Macaw chicks living high up on sandstone cliffs in Northeast Brazil. Working conditions are extreme and the timing for this expedition is critical - they must get to the chicks before they fledge the nests. Her mission is crucial to better understand the species’ biology, behaviour and environmental needs. This valuable knowledge can steer conservation efforts in the right direction to ensure the safety of their natural habitat and protect them from harm. Heroic conservation stories like Erica's deserve to be told. With your help, we can make this documentary possible!

New magnolia species found on Arkive

Photographs on the Arkive website have helped two naturalists who had never met and work around 200 miles (310 kms) apart to identify two previously unrecorded species of one of Earth’s oldest flowering plants: the magnolia.

In 2010, Roberto Pedraza Ruiz gave Arkive a series of animal and plant photos he had taken in a life-rich cloud forest within eastern Mexico’s Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve. One of the photos he donated was identified as being the magnolia, Magnolia dealbata, classified as Endangered on the IUCN Red List. But the image raised questions for Dr José Antonio Vázquez, a botanist at the University of Guadalajara, when he came across it during a search of Arkive’s 16,000 free-to-view online flora and fauna fact-files.

As Roberto explains: “For Dr Vázquez, the specimen in the photo seemed unusual and he requested that I sent him more pictures. So I made several more trips to the cloud forest, documenting the flowers and fruits of the trees until finally receiving confirmation that I had photographed not only one but two completely new species of magnolias.”

SeaWorld to stop breeding orcas following controversy - The 'Blackfish Effect'?

The US theme park operator SeaWorld says it is ending its controversial orca breeding programme.

The decision means the orcas currently at the parks will be "the last generation", the company said. SeaWorld, which has 12 parks across the US, has faced heavy criticism over alleged poor treatment of its captive orcas, also known as killer whales. Activists have called for the orcas to be released into the wild but SeaWorld claims they would likely die. "For as long as they live, the orcas at SeaWorld will stay in our parks," the company said in a Los Angeles Times op-ed. SeaWorld has previously announced that it will phase out live orca shows. It said on Thursday it would also also scrap plans for a $100 million project called "Blue World" that would have enlarged its orca habitat at SeaWorld San Diego. California Congressman Adam Schiff, who was behind an act designed to phase out orca captivity, said: "These changes are something that advocates have been urging for years and I think SeaWorld will find that visitors will reward their actions with a renewed interest in the parks." SeaWorld's shares rose as much as 6% in morning trading following the announcement.

SeaWorld's treatment of orcas was highlighted in the 2013 documentaryBlackfish, which focused on a series of violent incidents involving an orca called Tilikum. The film also raised questions over the ethics of breeding programmes and practices such as the separation of calves from their mothers. Since the film was released visitor numbers have fallen at Sea World's main theme parks and its share price has halved. SeaWorld described the film as inaccurate, misleading and exploitative and launched a multi-million dollar marketing campaign to rebuild its reputation. Blackfish director Gabriela Cowperthwaite was quoted by HSUS as saying the decision to end orca breeding represented "truly meaningful change".

Star in The Wildlife Trust's 30 Days Wild Film!

Last year, our 30 Days Wild film was viewed nearly 200,000 times across the world. This year, we want you to take part...


30 Days Wild - do something wild every day for a month! from The Wildlife Trusts

Fancy yourself as a television star? Want to share your love of the wild with the world? Or maybe you just want to be part of the UK's leading nature challenge?

Upload your films here: dropbox.com/sh/rvw1yfcggccv7id/AAAOq0dVUxio_Bv-L5L_9x6Oa?dl=0

We're looking for you to send us your ideas for Random Acts of Wildness - in film form. In no more than 10 seconds, we need you to capture your favourite Random Act of Wildness on camera and upload it to our Dropbox account. Then we'll edit them all together to create a gorgeous, fun and funky film that captures just how amazing wildlife and wild places are - and why you should want to go wild this June.

It doesn't matter how good (or bad!) the quality is - a camera phone will do just fine. If you've got footage from last year, that's great, but pick a sunny day if you'd like to film something new.

Think about different perspectives, ideas and locations, and get creative:

  • Making elderflower cordial from scratch
  • Use a GoPro to follow a bumblebee
  • Sniffing wildflowers in the garden
  • Exploring an urban jungle
  • Feeling sand or grass between your toes

Try to make sure that there's some audio, too - a short sentence saying what you're doing. Upload your films here.

Leonardo DiCaprio: ‘This Is the Video Future Generations Will Be Wishing Everyone Watched Today’

Oscar-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio has advocated for a number of worthy causes, from fighting climate change to the importance of conservation. Now, with a single tweet, the planetary steward shines a light on the colossal environmental impact of animal agriculture.

In his tweet, DiCaprio included a link to a stunning video from Mercy For Animals, a Los Angeles-based nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing cruelty to farmed animals, and promoting compassionate food choices and policies. The 4-minute clip, with the tag-line “This is the video future generations will be wishing everyone watched today,” starts by showing the awe-inspiring, grandeur of our living, breathing planet Earth as well as its incredibly vast biodiversity. It then turns dark as footage rolls of crumbling glaciers and disappearing coastlines, and links these global catastrophes to mankind’s insatiable appetite for meat. The video points out that animal agriculture and meat consumption is the number one cause of environmental destruction, species extinction and ocean “dead zones”. The agricultural industry has consumed one-third of all fresh water and has destroyed 91 percent of the Amazon. The video, however, ends on a good note. Its message, “She is our mother, there is only one, she is dying, she can be saved,” urges us all to help save our struggling ecosystems before it’s too late. Watch here:


Planet Earth from mercyforanimals

The Hollywood superstar is also the executive producer of Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret, a searing documentary about animal agriculture and its contribution to environmental ill, as well as Big Ag turning a blind eye to the disaster in the making.

ZooMoo premieres in China to wild success

ZooMoo Animal Friends, a 60 part children’s series, premiered last month on CCTV14 in China to a massive 252 million viewers.

Co-produced by ZooMoo Networks and CCTV, ZooMoo Animal Friends aired on prime time daily from 8 February 2016. It was the number one show in the country in its time slot in the 4-14 year old demo and, with a 2.27% audience share, won the top ranked show across the demo.

The show was watched by 72.68 Million kids aged 4-14; the second largest group were 25-34 year old people with an audience of 41.94 Million.

The series continues to air weekly, with more episodes in the pipeline. Mr. Zhuang Dianjun, head of CCTV Kids, says the ratings reflect the perfect matching of wildlife content with this age group and the appeal of the original characters.

“In the trial screenings, we found Chinese kids loved the content, just as they love nature and animals. The ratings are validation of identifying that niche on our channel.”

ZooMoo Networks Head of Programming Karin Simoncini was thrilled by the response to the Chinese adapted content. “We expected the series to do well, but to have such outstanding ratings on its very first outing was terrific. An audience of 252 Million unique viewers made of kids and adults is hard to beat.”

Originally conceived as a standalone channel, ZooMoo was repackaged into 60 half-hour episodes co-produced by ZooMoo Networks, its creative team at New Zealand-based NHNZ, and CCTV.

The series includes successful global ZooMoo show Lost!, as well as original Panda and Snub-Nosed Monkey puppet content, Chinese animation showcasing local stories and originally composed songs that creatively combine traditional Chinese and modern music styles.

CEO of ZooMoo Networks International David Haslingden developed the channel in 2012, having identified a gap in the market for children’s programming dedicated to the animal kingdom. “It is remarkably satisfying to know that our uniquely created content is being seen by so many of China’s young. Our intention with ZooMoo is to engage young viewers with our wild world and to help them celebrate the animal kingdom.”

ZooMoo is available in over 20 territories across Latin America, the United States, Asia and the Pacific.

FOX Launches New NHNZ Programmes at MIPTV

Fox will be launching the second season of NHNZ’s ocean wildlife series Our Big Blue Backyard alongside the second season of Wild 24, and a brand new series Extreme Animal Babies at MIPTV 2016 in April.

Our Big Blue Backyard (5 x hrs) explores unique marine locations around New Zealand’s coastline, revealing the daily dramas, challenges and triumphs of the marine animals that live in these neighbourhoods - from iconic orca, penguins and sharks through to blue cod, snapper and crayfish and all in between.

Wild 24 (6 x hrs) focusses on various characters through a day in locations around the world: New Zealand, Brazil, India, South Seas, the Equator and Australia.

The new series Extreme Animal Babies (6 x hrs) reveals the characters of the world’s most engaging animal babies – be they daredevils, family fighters, fussy eaters or troublemakers.

“The first series of both Our Big Blue Backyard and Wild 24 have been high selling properties, with terrific appeal to global audiences,” says Fox’s Vice President of Content & Marketing, Connie Hodson. “Our Big Blue Backyard is a stunning production, with engaging storytelling and intimate access to marine animals in their natural habitats; we are excited to have our hands on the second season.

Wild 24 combines a compelling narrative, with quality archive, giving an insight into the daily routine of wildlife around the world. And we have high expectations with the Extreme Animal Babies – a delightful romp through the wild nurseries of the world.”

NHNZ Managing Director Kyle Murdoch says it’s hugely satisfying to have these series launching at MIPTV. “Our production teams have been working around the clock to get these shows out the door, and it’s always rewarding to have such volume hit the market arena.”

Our Big Blue Backyard is being produced for TVNZ, funded by NZ on Air Platinum fund, and Wild 24 and Extreme Animal Babies are co-productions for Nat Geo Wild International.

A really wild interview with Chris Packham

Rewildline Britain Director, Helen Meech, recently had a chance to interview TV presenter and rewilding advocate, Chris Packham, about his views on rewilding and hopes for the future.

How is rewilding different from traditional nature conservation?
Well I’d like to be able to tell you that rewilding is a great new idea that we’ve just come up with, but it isn’t! It’s an idea that has evolved over some time as we’ve been investigating ways to rectify the problems we have in our landscapes. For a long time we’ve been using a model of conservation using nature reserves - putting fences around them, managing them – and they have become an important repository for life, refuges in many cases. But while these little piecemeal offerings might be pretty little postcards of the past for us to visit on a Sunday and get a quick fix of nature, when you look at the bigger picture, habitats are still in decline. We’ve rushed to protect habitats that have become rarer – ancient woodland, heathland and downland – habitats that support an interesting diversity of life, and ended up with lots of little jewels. But these jewels are not joined up, and so are very fragile in the long-term. More recently, we’ve learnt that we can rebuild habitats. We can take arable fields, fields you would think are virtually dead, and transform them in a matter of a few years. We have the “technology” to do that, and that should be very empowering. I feel very confidently that rewilding is the answer to nature’s restoration.

Gordon Buchanan: from Springwatch to wrestling giant anacondas

He’s spent 20 years filming the world’s wonders, but the presenter has just faced his toughest challenge yet: living with hunters in the Amazon and Kalahari.

Gordon Buchanan has just got out of hospital. With malaria. Yes, the man who makes his living chasing lions, wrestling giant anaconda and hauling crocodiles has been brought down by that most tiny of beasts – the mosquito. “I’m not going to say I think I was dying,” he tells me, “but I imagine people who are dying feel a lot like that.” In his current documentary series,Tribes, Predators and Me, Buchanan joins the world’s most remote tribes to observe how they live alongside nature’s most deadly predators. He joins a Waorani family in Ecuador’s Amazon jungle as they hunt for anaconda as part of a strength-giving ritual, visits the bushmen of the Kalahari who live among lions, and travels up the Sepik river in Papua New Guinea to learn how the Ngala call and hunt for crocodiles in the mud. Buchanan has spent over 20 years capturing the world’s wonders as a wildlife film-maker, from recording back-garden foxes in Springwatch to spending a year living with the black bears of Minnesota in The Bear Family and Me. His transformation from cameraman to presenter led famously to footage of him being brought to tears when he discovered tigers living above 3,000m in the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan.

Interview: BBC presenter Kate Humble on growing up wild

The BBC television presenter tells Sarah Lazarus that she got her big break by mistake.

BAD HAIR DAY - I got into TV presenting by mistake. After I returned from travelling, I started work as a production assistant on a show called Animal Hospital. I absolutely loved it. After that I was asked to work on the Holiday programme. On my second day, my boss called me into his office and asked if I'd be interested in presenting. I wasn't, but they asked if I would do a screen test. I had to walk along the banks of the River Thames, talking to camera and interviewing people. I had huge 1980s hair and it was a very windy day and it was blowing everywhere. I assumed nothing would come of it but some time later my boss said, "We'd like you to go to France and present a piece on a barge in Normandy. And please do something about your hair."
