Who Are We?

We are a collective of ecologists and filmmakers.

Biome is made up of like-minded people who have a desire to highlight issues affecting our wildlife and ecosystem both here in the UK and around the world. Throughout history, humans have had an enormous impact on wildlife, hunting animals to extinction, and continue to threaten our wildlife through harmful materials in our air, our earth and our oceans.
