There is an urgent need to cut all emissions to limit the impacts of the climate crisis. So, how can wildlife filmmakers play their part and accelerate this transition?

Jo Ruxton, alongside, Jonny Keeling, Janet Vissering, Paula Kahumbu, and Ashwika Kapur, discussed this and more at COP26. 

What did they discuss?

  • International wildlife filmmaking is one of the highest emitting genres in TV. There is an urgent need to cut all emissions to limit the impacts of the climate crisis. How can wildlife filmmakers play their part and accelerate this transition?
  • Most wildlife films are made in the global north with film crews 'parachuted in' to film wildlife in the global south leaving few skills behind. How can we stop this practice and increase support for local filmmakers telling their own stories to their own audiences
  • Stories have enormous power to change the narrative on an issue. How can we help tackle the climate and ecological crisis through the stories we tell? What are we currently excluding from the stories we chose to tell that our audiences need to know?
