Conservation Media is the home of professional ecologists who use green film-making to bring about conservation issues and ideas in professional-grade videos.
The site is fairly new but Conservation Media has a wonderfully sound concept behind them. Their push for green film-making means that their video production is carbon neutral. They use solar power to charge all batteries in the field, efficient LED lighting, reusable memory, environmentally friendly computer equipment, efficient field vehicles, and offset any other energy consumption through Brighter Planet.
Make sure to check out Disturbance, Conservation Media’s award-winning, amazing film 19-minute film on fire ecology and fire dependent species, including the Black-backed Woodpecker.
Conservation Media is not looking to profit off their films but instead is benefiting from funding from the exposure their web presence is getting. The company is highly active across social networking sites:
Some cool things to look for from Conservation Media in 2010 include:
- A longer broadcast piece on birds and climate change to show the general public how climate change impacts bird species, including some much more disproportionally
- Filming Kittlitz’s Murrelets and researchers with the NPS in Glacier Bay
- Short web piece for Montana Audubon on sage grouse
- A piece for the Sonoran Institute on the value of open space
Keep checking out Conservation Media for new conservation-focused films and make sure to spread the word on and offline.
