Conservation news clips is a way of storytelling by conservationists through making short video clips of either their study or a conservation project they manage. The aim of the activity is to encourage conservation practitioners and researchers to film their daily activities to easily communicate their findings to the broader community.
By using a short film of the project I manage as a case study. I will be presenting successes and challenges as an early career conservationist in the field in a very remote corner of my country where I work with my fellow youth in a bid to mitigate environmental challenges. I believe for conservationists to reach the wider community and personnel from other disciplines we need to use the right media and me from experience the use of film not only encourages them to share the story but it also introduces them to diversity in pouring wildlife that they may not have a chance to see anywhere else.

The activity will involve a 4 minutes’ presentation of what is news clip. It will be followed by a 6 minutes film that I did for my project. then 10 minutes of why it’s important for conservation practitioners to film their work in the field and how they can do it. And allow for any Q and A session.
