Jocelyn Stokes

Filmmaker, photographer and conservation biologist focused on honoring our global biodiversity through powerful storytelling media that empower positive solutions.


Planetary health begins with conscientious, empowered communities. Through media creation we work to conserve our most biologically diverse global ecosystems through programs that educate, empower and promote sustainable alternative livelihoods.


We can no longer afford to be ignorant of our responsibility to address the issues we face as finite natural resources diminish and natural systems fail due to unsustainable practices. Awareness leads to comprehensive solutions for conserving our ecosystems.


We create story-telling media that share the story of our planet's most threatened ecosystems and invaluable inhabitants. Media campaigns are focused on building a global awareness of wildlife threatened with extinction and solution-oriented action plans.

This I believe:
Humanity has the potential to sustain symbiosis with the natural world. Humanity is blessed with intelligence, creative minds, strong spirits and an ability to be knowledgeable, as well as conscious of our surroundings. We may be the most gifted of beasts. Yet, with our advanced ability there comes a vital responsibility to exist as a conscious body.

As technology and globalization continue to develop, we are becoming a united presence on Earth. I see this unity as an enabling union of consciousness. For the sanctity of every soul, present and future, we cannot afford anything less.
We need to exist harmoniously on this planet and use our resources with the utmost care.
