Conservation Heroes

Season 3 Episode 7
Guests: Leo Thom and Felipe Rosa


Welcome to Conservation Heroes, the heroes of this show are the dolphins, bats, otters, mangroves, newts and many others who are protecting our environment right now. This show will look at different laws, guidelines, or policies and will also offer you some top tips to help you protect our planet and even become a conservation hero yourself. Each episode will contain interviews from scientists, academics, lawyers, environmental activists and more.


In this episode we talk to Leo Thom, Creative Director for Mangrove Action Project, and fellow freelance filmmaker Felipe Rosa. Leo and Felipe first met in 2019 whilst on the Wildlifelife Film Making Masters at the University of West England. On the podcast they talk to us about the challenges they faced making their first film together. The documentary, which explores how stingless bees could be the key to successful mangrove restoration, will be released later this year.
