Dr George McGavin, Wildscreen Patron
“Natural history films are more than just entertainment. They provide a crucial insight into the world, from which so many of us are increasingly divorced. We cannot properly value what we do not know. I truly believe the imagery that Wildscreen cares for and promotes are major elements in the battle to protect our imperiled natural world. Wildscreen has become a crucial force in bringing about changes of attitude that will have to happen if humanity is not to totally devastate the planet.”
– Sir David Attenborough, Wildscreen Patron
“Wildscreen are all about knowing the natural world, creating awareness about the connections between ourselves and all creatures, from minute microbes to mighty giants. With knowing comes caring, and with caring there is hope – we have a chance now, as never before – and perhaps as never again – to provide security for wildlife on the land and in the sea, and in so doing, security for ourselves.”
– Dr Sylvia Earle, Wildscreen Patron
HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh
Professor Edward O. Wilson, Harvard University
“Books and lectures can do a lot to explain the facts of life on this planet, but images and sounds are better at stirring the imagination. I am quite sure that through its series of Festivals and ARKive, Wildscreen has been responsible for making more people aware of the natural world than any other conservation organisation.”
– HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh
“Wildscreen has gained international recognition and support because,
first it is the premier supporter of wildlife and natural history films in the world, and
second because ARKive is our leading repository for images of Earth’s endangered species. This enterprise is fundamental to research and education, and will grow more so with each passing year. I’m proud and pleased to be a patron.”
– Professor Edward O. Wilson, Harvard University
