‘Conservation Film-making is a detailed and well-researched ‘how to’ guide, but it is more than that – it’s a good read! It should be read by everyone involved in conservation, to understand better how film could – indeed should – be used.’
Ian Redmond OBE, Chairman of Ape Alliance
‘Conservation Film-making is a richly nourishing book, a professional tour de force, and a compelling argument that films, when made according to the best practices contained in this book, can make a huge and positive difference to the world in which we live.’
Chris Palmer, Director of the Center for Environmental Filmmaking
‘This terrific book will become the bible for everyone determined to fly in the face of everything-is-wonderful-and-happy natural history programmes and show, instead, that conservation can be awe-inspiring and watchable, too.’
Mark Carwardine, Conservationist
‘This book is of enormous value to everyone involved in conservation’
