Conservation Films and Environmental Education for Sustainable Coexistence of Humans and Wildlife in Namibia.
Saving Our Wildlife, One Film at a Time: Join the Conservation Film Foundation
NAMIBIA is facing unprecedented environmental challenges, from prolonged droughts and biodiversity loss to pollution, poaching and habitat destruction. By raising awareness, inspiring action, and promoting sustainable practices, we can protect our landscapes and secure a better future for all. Our guiding principles:
- Reconciling humans with ecosystem conservation.
- Documenting voices of people coexisting with wildlife.
- Filming leading and relevant conservation research.
- Embracing traditional and indigenous ecological knowledge.
- Exploring holistic management approaches to secure a future where humans and wildlife can thrive in coexistence.
Thus, the Conservation Film Foundation is dedicated to producing and distributing high-quality, impactful films that showcase the beauty and fragility of nature, the importance of conservation, and the power of individual and collective action.
By supporting the Conservation Film Foundation (CFF), donors and funders are investing in a unique organization that covers the entire spectrum of conservation, conservation research, and environmental education and community outreach projects in Namibia. Unlike other NGOs and non-profits, CFF’s approach is centered around impactful storytelling through documentary films that showcase the important multi-disciplinary work being done in the field.
Donors can see exactly where their money is being allocated by viewing CFF’s films, which provide transparency and accountability. The films also serve as powerful educational tools, informing the public about relevant conservation efforts and inspiring action for the next generation of young Namibians.
Donors and funders can also benefit from the positive media coverage and recognition for contributions to conservation efforts, as well as increased customer loyalty and trust. The social media shorts distributed on CFF channels and the donors’ social media provide an additional avenue for exposure and reach. Therefore, supporting CFF is not just about funding conservation efforts, it’s about investing in transparency, education, and impactful storytelling that inspires action and positive change.
CONSERVATION RESEARCH FILMS
Our wildlife documentaries feature dedicated conservation research work and relevant environmental awareness initiatives that demonstrate scalable and measurable impact for mutually beneficial human wildlife co-existence in Namibia.
The CONSERVATION FILM FOUNDATION TRUST is an environmental education non-profit NGO for the purpose of raising and availing funds for documenting and filming ongoing conservation projects towards awareness of critical research work, environmental education, protecting biodiversity, saving endangered animal populations and replicating practical solutions for harmonious human wildlife coexistence.
CALL TO ACTION
Join us on our Film Expeditions to the heart of Namibia’s wilderness, where wildlife roams free and nature reigns supreme.
Through the lens of the Conservation Film Foundation, we discover the untold stories of those working tirelessly to protect and preserve these precious landscapes and their species and witness the awe-inspiring beauty of a world we cannot afford to lose.
Through our film safaris we learn about and celebrate these efforts, and hear from the voices of the people who are working to protect Africa’s wildlife.
For the CONSERVATION FILM FOUNDATION the goal of our conservation research films is to identify practical solutions that balance the needs of humans and wildlife, and to ensure the long-term health and resilience of natural ecosystems. This requires an interdisciplinary approach where we draw on expertise from fields such as ecology, genetics, sociology, veterinary science, economics, and policy analysis, and that engages stakeholders from diverse backgrounds and perspectives.
The ultimate question in conservation research is how to maintain biodiversity and ecosystem function in the face of anthropogenic (environmental change caused or influenced by people, either directly or indirectly) threats such as habitat loss, climate change, over-exploitation of natural resources, pollution, and invasive species. This overarching question encompasses many specific areas of research, such as understanding the impacts of specific threats on particular species or ecosystems, developing effective management strategies to mitigate these impacts, and assessing the socioeconomic and cultural factors that influence conservation outcomes.
MORE OF THE MEANINGFUL
All our documentaries of relevant conservation initiatives and critical conservation focused research work in Namibia can be viewed on CONSERVATIONISTS IN ACTION
CONSERVATION FILM FOUNDATION films are produced in Namibia to illuminate active conservation research, relevant environmental education and Eco-tourism projects, raising understanding of research on ecological functioning, biodiversity value and the vulnerability of endangered populations in Namibia. Our activities and documentary productions center around the vision of a positive balance between Namibia’s natural resources and humans being sustained, improved or restored.
Communities at the heart of Conservation
From stories of local rangers fighting against poaching, to tales of cultural practices that have sustained wildlife for generations, CFF films showcase the best of Namibia’s conservation.

By highlighting the importance of indigenous knowledge and the efforts of rural communities, we can find new ways to coexist with the wildlife that shares our living space. Community based natural resource management – CBNRM aims at contributing a significant proportion toward all conservation efforts in Namibia. We engage in direct and indirect support of those initiatives
Creating global awareness of the plight of rural communities living with endangered wildlife in Namibia is a priority. Subscribe to our work highlighting wildlife conservation efforts in Namibia on CONSERVATIONISTS IN ACTION .
