Three new films to highlight our partners’ work

Three brand new short films featuring stories from our community of partners have just been added to the MAVA collection launched in December 2021 on Following dedicated individuals working on the ground, the films seek to give an inspirational insight into the broader conservation work undertaken within the frame of our Strategic Partnerships.

The power of storytelling

In a world where the link between people and nature has become indisputable, sharing people’s stories and supporting empowerment and on-the-ground actions that work towards strengthening this connection is crucial. With our closing in mind, the desire to amplify impacts and bring the light on the work of our partners has become even more so relevant.

Over the last year, we have been working with the Resilient Foundation and WaterBear Network to produce 7 WaterBear original short films (6 to 11 min). The films cover a variety of topics reflecting the diversity of MAVA’s work:

  • ancient farming practice of transhumance in Spain actively creating new life and improving ecosystems
  • monitoring and reducing of bycatch (unintentionally caught marine life) in the Mediterranean
  • sustainable approach to harvesting and processing Açaí to move towards a greener economy in the Amazon region
  • protection of seabirds in Senegal (launched in December 2021)
  • fight against corrupt hydropower development in Bosnia and Herzegovina (launched in December 2021)
  • participation of fishers in the implementation of a Marine Protected Area in Spain (launched in December 2021)
  • transition to a circular economy in Switzerland (launched in December 2021)


Watch – Connect – Take Action

The films are available globally on the WaterBear platform, the first interactive streaming platform dedicated to the future of our planet. The platform is available for free and gives viewers the opportunity to connect to the partners and projects that are related to the focus of the film, and easily take action to support them.
