EXPERIENTIAL ECOTOURISM & CSR HOSPITALITY INITIATIVES
DESIGNED BASED ON AWARD-WINNING TRAVEL, HISTORY, WILDLIFE & CONSERVATION PROGRAMMES
EXPANDING HORIZONS: WILDLIFE CONSERVATION, EDUCATION & ECOTOURISM SERIES
PRODUCED BY ROOFBOX MEDIA IN PARTNERSHIP WITH HORIZON ECOTOURISM
In addition to our humanitarian & sustainable development documentary series, Cycle of Life, we decided to invest time and resources in creating and developing a new series focused on wildlife conservation & ecotourism: Expanding Horizons. On account of the unique relationships and partnerships that our hospitality & ecotourism arm (Horizon Ecotourism) has built over the years, our media crew was granted special access to film at some of the most renowned wildlife conservancies, prestigious luxury ecotourism lodges and inspirational community projects, etc.
Please see the trailer for our latest production, Expanding Horizons Part 1, which Horizon Ecotourism is sponsoring as a CSR partner and a strategic partner to the travel, hospitality and community outreach organisations featured in the series. Please also see the short dedication piece (Wind of Hope) to Delia Craig (the mother of Will Craig, and grandmother of wildlife conservationist, Jecca Craig).
Part 1 of Expanding Horizons will be screened at the Royal Geographical Society (London) next year to coincide with the 10-year anniversary of Delia Craig’s passing. In addition to members of the Craig family, a number of world renowned conservationists, sustainable development experts, dignitaries and royalty are expected to be in attendances for this special invite-only event.
