  • The Race to Save the Finless Porpoise

    • Documentary DP

    The race is on to save one of the Yangtze's last mammals: the Yangtze finless porpoise. With just 1000 porpoises left in the wild today, WWF-China and partners are taking drastic steps to change their fortunes. With the well known loss of the Baiji, also called the Yangtze river dolphin, the finless porpoise struggles to escape the fate of its cousin in a harsher environment than ever.

  • Kenyan Women: Successful Leaders in Coffee

    • Documentary DP

    This documentary portrays the life and stories of Lucy Kairuki, from the Thiriku Coffee Society, and Rosemary Wamuiru, from the Iria-Ini Coffee Society, Kenya. Both women, having lost their husbands, work as inspiring farmers in a predominantly male, coffee culture. This is an inspiring look at two Kenyans who have created opportunities for themselves through coffee farming.

  • Fake news, real consequences: The woman fighting disinformation

    • Documentary DP

    As the 2016 U.S. election illustrated, social media has become a powerful tool for disinformation and propaganda. Today, the Philippines is center stage in that battle as its government leverages platforms like Facebook to combat its critics — particularly the media. And, as President Rodrigo Duterte continues to consolidate power, many wonder if democracy in the U.S. is at risk.

  • Danger in the Forest

    • Documentary DP

    Deep inside a thick Cambodian forest, rangers patrol their territory on high alert for armed loggers and poachers. A surge in the illegal wildlife trade has caused some species, such as the tiger, to disappear from the wilderness. Rangers here are on an urgent mission to keep the poachers at bay.

  • Zamboanga City: Holding on to Hope and Home (UNHCR Philippines)

    • News Shooter / Video Journalist

    Nurhan Anuddin and his family were directly affected by the siege that occurred that fateful day of September 2013.
