Recognition for 'Stand up for Nature'
Exeter University (Cornwall Campuses) recognises and congratulates its students, Jamie Unwin and Hannah Pollock for winning the SES Rivers Foundation Award for Health and Humanities 2017 at the SES Explorer Awards in May.
Jamie is a 21 year old zoologist and cameraman, currently studying at the University of Exeter. Using a successful expedition to Malawi last year as a model, and a healthy portfolio of wildlife filming already under his belt, Jamie and fellow zoologist, Hannah Pollock, will embark on an inspiring, educational and empowering expedition to Kenya in Autumn 2017. The initial project is to find inspirational Kenyans who, against all odds and in the face of adversity, civil unrest and poverty, have made it their mission to help conserve Kenya’s wildlife. The two plan to capture these remarkable stories in a series of short films. Using a bicycle powered cinema constructed by the pair, Jamie and Hannah will then proudly share these critical and inspiring messages across Kenya, aiming to inspire audiences both locally and wider afield of the benefits of protecting and living harmoniously alongside wildlife.
