The Great Apes Film Initiative (Established 2005)

Mission: Using the power of film and the media to effectively engage with a wide cross section of communities, inspiring and supporting local solutions to conservation problems facing tropical forests and the people who depend upon them.
Using the great apes as flagship species, GAFI has been highly successful in using the medium of film as an effective conservation tool for instigating measurable and sustainable change in both local communities and their governments. When shown in rural or hard-to-reach communities, films attract large crowds providing a unique opportunity to deliver powerful conservation messages.
