Award-winning media expeditions to the wildest places on the planet: unearthing stories on under-reported issues

By undertaking media expeditions to some of the most biodiverse places on Earth, we unearth stories and breaking-news through investigative reporting and solutions journalism.

We focus on under-reported stories about environmental and social injustice that give a voice to marginalised communities.

We believe that the only way to create compelling journalism and media projects about environmental and social issues is to get out there, meet the experts, and understand the challenges and solutions on-the-ground.


Environmental news is under-reported. When it does hit the headlines, the mainstream media bombards us with destruction and extinctions, leading us to believe that there is nothing being done to protect our natural world. Surrounded by this negativity, we feel helpless. Helplessness leads to apathy and inaction.

This needs to change. At the same time, blindless positivity and optimism isn’t the answer. 

Instead, we aim to unearth the complex challenges and nuanced stories so that real, robust solutions can be found.
