The media provides a great tool for science communication. I have been involved in the production of various videos and a few nature documentaries. Below you can check out some of these projects. I also co-founded the nonprofit organisation Wildlife Messengers, where I’m currently engaged in the productions of further documentaries. Check out my profile on IMDb: imdb.me/georgeolah
