Founders, S-J Cooper-White and Philip Dalton are proud to announce WildstreamTV is now a Community Interest Company. As a charitable organisation, WildstreamTV will continue to produce high-quality footage of seldom seen British wildlife; bringing people closer to wildlife behaviour and inspiring you to connect with nature in your area.
Wildlife filmmakers, S-J and Philip have spent the last 3 years developing remote camera techniques, continuously recording wildlife throughout the seasons, day and night – often with truly incredible results. From kingfisher sibling rivalry to a young otter sleeping in a holt. Without the presence of a human being, cameras have been poised to capture truly natural behaviours from our native wildlife.
In late 2019, WildstreamTV forged an exciting partnership with the Somerset Wildlife Trust, working with Head of Engagement, Jolyon Chesworth. WildstreamTV are installing 4K screens playing a 90 minute ’Slow TV’ film of Kingfishers. The film is gentle and engaging where the action plays out in real time. The WildstreamTV screens will be installed in areas such as the Beacon Cancer Care Centre in Musgrove Hospital, where patients often have to sit for hours either in waiting rooms or treatment rooms, with little to no access to the outdoors.
WildstreamTV firmly believes access to wildlife and nature promotes wellbeing. The footage promotes positivity and relaxation as well as encouraging access to local nature reserves.
Over the coming months a period of documentation and evaluation of the impact of WildstreamTV footage will get under way. This will inform our future filming and assist with funding applications to enable more screens for more communities.
As a CIC, we are reliant on donations from both individuals and corporate organisations.
