Established in 2012 by a coalition of leading animal charities and NGOs, AnimalPledge.org is a scheme by which companies and individuals can learn about, and commit to reducing, their negative impact on animals as a result of their use in entertainment industry, as well as mitigating the potential repercussions of their productions on animals in the wild, thus aiding their conservation.
By making the pledge organisations and individuals in the Film and TV industry make a commitment never to use performing wild animals in future productions.
It is completely free to make the pledge and we hope that you will join us!

Richard Brock worked in the BBC NHU for 35 years, producing the highly successful Life on Earth and Living Planet series with David Attenborough, gaining international recognition as an accomplished producer. Concerned by the Corporations lack of willingness to address the real current state of the environment however, he left the BBC and started his own independent production company, Living Planet Productions. He then made over 100 films on a wide range of environmental topics, shown all over the world, and determined to make a difference, he decided to set up the Brock Initiative, to use his archive of footage, and to ask others to do the same, to create new films, not made for a general TV audience, but made for those who are really connected to the situation in hand.
"Showing the truth on some minority channel is not the answer. Showing it where it counts, is."
The Brock Initiative has successfully completed numerous projects in different countries. Aside from making a real difference in these areas the Brock Initiative hopes to encourage and assist others, both film-makers and those who can use film in their work, to do the same.

The Great Apes Film Initiative (GAFI) uses the power of film and media to engage all those who can make a difference to endangered great apes. This involves getting films to Presidents, Ministers in government, national television audiences and many local communities, schools, universities, wildlife management centres, ...even Karaoke bars across Africa and SE Asia.
Since its inception six years ago GAFI has screened films to approximately 300 million people in 14 great ape range states and carries out monitoring programmes to check how effective its screening projects are being. GAFI gets its screenings out via 4x4 vehicles and river boats which hasnt been very cost effective or environmentally friendly - however we are now embarking upon the worlds first conservation pedal powered cinema systems screenings where we use a bicycle to travel from one village to another and screen the films usisng pure person power on the bike.

Marine Conservation Society (MCS), the UK charity that cares for our seas, shores and wildlife.
MCS is the voice for everyone who loves the sea.
We work to secure a future for our living seas, and to save our threatened sea life before it is lost forever.
Our wonderful seas, shores and wildlife are under threat.
Almost nowhere in UK seas is marine wildlife safe from harm. We need to establish vital marine protected areas where wildlife can recover and flourish.
Levels of beach litter have doubled over the last decade. MCS works to clear our seas of the rising tide of rubbish that is so dangerous to sea life, including seabirds, whales and dolphins.
88% of Europe’s fish stocks are overfished or depleted. Once common fish such as skate and cod are now rare.
MCS works to reduce the overfishing which is devastating the life in our seas, and promotes sustainable seafood alternatives.
Our work ensures that the sea’s rich wildlife can be restored, fish stocks grow more plentiful, and our beaches and seawater become cleaner.

United Conservationists is a different kind of conservation group. We believe in you, in humanity, and the fact that we are all inherently good deep down inside. In fact, we've already proven it.
See, some of our founders made a little movie called Sharkwater. Soon NGOs started popping up and government policy started changing. All it took was information and a spark, and the world will never be the same.
But the problem is bigger now. Its not just animals and ecosystems that are in danger, now humanity is at stake, and we don‚t have much time.
We're counting on you to change the world, but you won‚t do it alone. We'll be bringing you allies, by packaging crucial information in groundbreaking entertainment to unite everyone as a force for change.
Imagine if everybody in the UK made just a few small changes in their garden to help our British wildlife.
Think of the giant patchwork of habitats that could be created, all the new homes that could be formed, and all the mouths that could be fed. And you can do as much or as little as you like!
Here at The Wildlife Garden Project, we are transforming an ordinary garden into a haven for wildlife. We will show you exactly how we did it through our film, which we are shooting over the course of the transformation, and our website at www.wildlifegardenproject.com.
Have a browse around: you'll find how to videos, tips for your wildlife garden, sneaky peeks of the film, and a forum where you can connect with other nature lovers.
So, no excuses, get those spades out and enjoy all those creatures that will make your new wildlife garden their new home!
