Creators On the Edge

To inspire and encourage people to see nature differently, we support outstanding content creators to produce original stories about their unique relationships with nature.


The power of oceans, the unpredictability of waves, and the all-consuming nature of water – our latest collaboration Surf is captured through the lens of Sebastien J. Zanella (Desillusion magazine). He follows free surfers Pacha and Coral as they explore the Galapagos and contemplate their place alongside and within it.

The Call of the Tide

Our relationship with water goes back further than we could imagine – is that why we feel so close to it? 22-year-old Pacha Light is a free surfer, Earth advocate, and storyteller who finds peace in our deep seas. A familiar sense of love, and close encounters with sea lions, marine iguanas and green sea turtles, inspire her ocean story.

The Way of Coral

Surfing, like us, is entirely dependent on nature. From welcoming waves to unseen wildlife, like sea lions, marine iguanas and green sea turtles, to embrace these elements is to find harmony with the natural world. 18-year-old free surfer and multimedia artist Coral Fujino knows this all too well.

Phenomenal glow-ups

Makeup can be magic. Especially when you mix it with a few natural phenomena. From the northern lights to lenticular clouds and beyond, we’re bringing you three picture-perfect expressions from inspiring artists inspired by nature. This is meteorology at its most miraculous.

Equality with Humans

Witty and thought-provoking takes on living differently with Earth’s wilder species, from our second cohort of creators.


Andrew Kalaweit

Eager to get closer to wild animals, Andrew Kalaweit left the city and followed his father into the Indonesian jungle. Now based on a reserve, the teenager makes conservation-themed films about the remarkable animals he is privileged to encounter there.


David Ian Howe

Ever wondered about the bonds between dogs and humans? You’re not alone. Anthropologist David Howe is an expert in them. The relationships many of us share with “man’s best friend” also come in handy in his work as a science communicator.


Marshmallow Laser Feast

Why limit yourself when you’re inviting your participants to go beyond their senses? Art collective Marshmallow Laser Feast doesn’t! Fusing art, science and technology, MLF uses film, installation, kinetic sculpture, and live performance to create immersive experiences that explore our connection to nature.



Animal lovers and storytellers Phoebe and Joshua have a shared mission: to spread joy and kindness to anyone who views their work. They freely admit that their personalities are reflected in the characters they create, but surely that’s a creators’ prerogative?!


How Does Nature Make Us Well?

Inspired by lockdown, our first creators offer funny, engaging and powerful angles on nature and personal wellbeing.


Jam and Germs

When he stumbled across his passion for the microcosmos – and found himself in the process – James was blown away. Since then, his otherworldly YouTube videos, documentaries, films and best-selling book about a world none of us can see without a microscope, have reached millions.


Compost Queen

Meet a compost coach from Sydney, Australia, who helps you to see nature differently. For Kate, the cycle of decay and renewal is magical: worms use leftovers to make ‘black gold’; allowing us to nourish ourselves physically and spiritually.


Boreal Faun

Following tracks of wild animals is So’s way of connecting with nature and the creatures that call it home. This intimate ‘courtship’ allows So – a Greek-American naturalist who’s transgender – to explore questions of identity and find sustenance.


Plant Therapy Advocate

Gardening is integral to Veronica’s story of how she overcame grief. After losing her sister, it was reconnecting to the earth that brought healing and – over time – joy. Now she shares her love of all things green with her online community.


Nick Pumphrey

Often found snapping thunderously beautiful Cornish seascapes, Nick’s connection to the sea is almost mystical. His project involved wild swimming at sunrise with different companions and recording their deeply personal and – sometimes – existential reflections.
