Love Nature commissions duo from Icon & NHNZ, unveils conservation support program – TBI Vision
Streaming and broadcast brand Love Nature has commissioned two wildlife series as part of an initiative designed to support people and animals involved in conservation efforts.
Love Nature Gives Back will provide financial donations and media support to help conserve wildlife species and habitats, as well as people working in conservation organizations, featured in its programming.
The shows involved in the program include a new commission Wild Dogs: Running with the Pack (6 x 30 minutes), which is produced by British company Icon Films. It features the journey of wildlife filmmaker Julz Braatvedt on his mission to film and protect Africa’s wild dogs with the Zambian Carnivore Program.
Love Nature Gives Back has created personalized promotional content for the Zambian Carnivore program, while a free license for local broadcaster ZNBC has also been made available for viewers to watch selected episodes.
Become an orangutan (3 x 60 minutes) is from NHNZ Worldwide and follows the animals living at the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation (BOSF) as they learn to do it in the wild. Support for Love Nature’s new program includes the creation of a fundraising short film for BOSF.
Both titles will premiere on Love Nature’s platforms around the world this summer and on Sky Nature later this year. The duo is also being sold by Blue Ant International and will be available on MIPTV next week.
Alison Barrat, Senior Vice President of Production and Development at Love Nature, described the shows as “great examples of Love Nature’s mission to create compelling new series for our audience, and they’re a perfect fit for our initiative. Love Nature Gives Back”.
She added, “Love Nature Gives Back was born out of the need to connect more meaningfully with our content and give back to organizations dedicated to wildlife conservation.”
