Creativity and conservation are a winning combination
A DW web documentary was highly commended by the Association of International Broadcasting (AIB) at the media excellence awards ceremony in London. Serengeti– Towards an uncertain future takes an up-close and interactive look at the unique natural beauty of this famous national park and addresses the tough challenges of conservation. The documentary was produced as a part of DW’s environmental series, Global Ideas, and was distinguished in the Factual Online Production category at the AIB awards. It premiered in August 2013 in English, German and Spanish and has already won several awards. The Frankfurt Zoological Society was also an integral production partner.
And there is a new interactive web documentary from DW’s Global Ideas. On Expedition is an interactive guide to everything researchers need to survive long journeys into exotic field locations. The web doc follows the story of a WWF researcher in South America who encounters a very unexpected challenge during a research expedition.

A new perspective on the Serengeti, from Global Ideas
Our team from Global Ideas has never shied from adventures. They have been to the forests in New Guinea and Guyana, in the Favela in Rio de Janeiro, the coral reefs of Vanuatu and the streets of Mumbai. But the latest webdoc takes on even more unchartered territory – with a virtual safari in the Serengeti. Reporters from Global Ideas spent two weeks in May on the East-African savannah and recorded a majestic world. They witnessed the wildebeest migration and got close-up lions, zebras, rhinos and many other colourful creatures. The Serengeti is also in danger and the documentary brings experts together to explain how vulnerable this precious natural reserve really is. The project was produced in close cooperation with the Frankfurt Zoological Society (FZS).
Serengeti – Toward an Uncertain Future combines breathtaking photography with high definition video and audio to give you a fascinating multimedia experience, deep inside the animal kingdom.
