Story-telling is a powerful tool that inspires and empowers understanding of our world. GLOBIO was founded by a photographer who saw firsthand the role original story-telling could play in education and engaging audiences to learn and take positive action. Our Media & Communications Program works to create original content that can be used by GLOBIO and by our global partners, in exactly that role: inspire awareness and understanding.

Documentary Films

GLOBIO, through its Apes Like Us project, explores creating, producing and supporting longer-form film documentaries, which can tell more complex stories less suited to broadcast on our YouTube channel and social media. The potential to tell stories in a documentary format, and create educational materials that can support the films, is opening new opportunities for our work to seen and used by audiences in formal and in-formal education ‑ expanding on our effort to engage a wider audience in Connecting Species, People, Planet.


Apes Like Us

The Apes Like Us channel on YouTube is the visual heart of our great apes education outreach. It has the opportunity to reach millions of global viewers on multiple device platforms with a visually powerful message about the value and importance of great apes surviving on our planet.

Our channel is steadily increasing viewership, generating a supplementary revenue stream to offset production and administrative cost associated.
