Our expertise is in filmmaking and we know that in some cases it will be best for us to stay out of the way and let the experts do their work while we simply roll the cameras and share their stories. However, we want to roll up our sleeves and get to work whenever it's possible! We will help with any and all aspects of environmental restoration including wildlife rehabilitation and re-wilding efforts, planting trees, collecting seeds, preparing and cultivating land, cleaning beaches and harbours, teaching children, working, learning and sharing with local indigenous communities, restoring watersheds and ecosystems, transporting supplies, setting up camps and working with local conservation efforts. There are an almost infinite number of ways for us to help.
Restoration Planet is an ambitious project. Season one has been completed with episodes filmed in British Columbia, Alberta, Newfoundland, France, Spain, Albania and Montenegro. Season two includes Ecuador and Costa Rica. We have a proven track record of producing feature length, story-driven documentary films and that expertise will help build this important series. Importantly our partners and documentary subjects will gain access to professionally produced sharable content in the form of mini docs, vlogs, blogs, live updates, photos, video clips and special behind the scenes moments.
From Indigenous-led conservation efforts to global organizations, from planting a single tree in India to planting billions around the world, from rescuing Koalas in fire ravaged Australia to the rewilding of Scotland, from restoring watersheds to cleaning a beach and everything in between. We seek out those who encourage us to rethink how we live, how we eat, what we buy and how we move. From across the globe there are incredible people making a difference. We all need to see this, share it and let it inspire us as individuals, communities and organizations.
Restoration Planet will, through the use of our feature and short films, mini docs, video clips, photographs and blogs help to change or influence public opinions and attitudes. Ultimately this can lead to behavioural or policy change with respect to climate change and ecological restoration. Through our work we will increase and unite the number of voices working to stop climate change and restore the planet.
