Doctors without Borders
While working on stories about the refugee crisis for many years, there’s been one organisation that truly stands out for helping people in the most dire situations. The medical personell from Doctors without borders are the first people you find in a crisis, often before other NGO’s arrive at the scene – and often the last people to leave. I have been impressed by their committment on multiple occasions, ranging from their psychological support to refugees on Malta to their emergency clinics on the border to Syria.
Zambia Carnivore Programme
While producing the 360-video story about Gibson for National Geographic me and my team got to spend a lot of time in the field with the Zambia Carnivore Programme (ZCP) and their awesome team of scientists. Following their work with lions, wild dogs and large carnivores it’s become increasingly evident how beset the field of conservation is – especially so in sub-saharan Africa. Money donated to ZCP will help the team stay on top of their research in the field, and make sure they can continue with the emergency response to snared animals.
Save Son Doong
While working on the story about Son Doong, the largest cave in the world, for National Geographic the cave was under a big threat. A threat that is still looming over its future. The cave wasn’t discovered by humans until 2009, yet a tourism company wants to build an intrusive cable car system through the cave. The number one voice against these developments is the Save Son Doong network, a tireless team of activists continuously touring Vietnam to gather signatures on a petition to save the cave from expansive tourism plans. A donation to them will help them keep the campaign alive, and bring our VR story to even more people in Vietnam.
