Uganda pre-production

We've been knee deep in pre-production preparing to shoot a short documentary for WWF in Uganda.

We hope to make the most of our 10 days in East Africa this June learning about the role that plantation forestry and communities can play in supporting sustainable development and wildlife conservation across the country.

The work of NGOs, governments and communities is paying off. Surveys revealed this week show that the endangered Mountain Gorilla in Uganda is on the rise, the only great ape in the world believed to be increasing in numbers.

While we don’t expect to see any gorillas but we are hoping to see plenty of trees, despite statistics that suggest Uganda is set to lose all forest cover by 2050. Watch this space.
