Visual Storytelling Alliance: A Partnership of Sony and Conservation International

Since 1995, Sony and Conservation International have worked together to capture stories of humanity’s relationship with nature. Through the Storytelling Alliance, we have sought to raise awareness worldwide of the need to protect the Earth’s biodiversity.​


Together, through the Sony and Conservation International Storytelling Alliance, we have captured unprecedented, cinematic footage that highlights the planet’s beautiful biodiversity and illustrates the threats our planet faces.

Using Sony’s professional broadcast equipment and state-of-the-art technology, Conservation International has captured, produced and shared hundreds of stories that have helped us accelerate global action for conservation. From restoring freshwater habitats in Colombia and conserving rainforests in Madagascar to creating marine parks in the South Pacific and protecting wildlife in Africa, these videos have helped shape global policy and highlight conservation investments needed to help our planet thrive.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Our Role​

​​​By combining powerful storytelling techniques and cutting-edge Sony technology, Conservation International and Sony continue to innovate and tell compelling stories that promote environmental conservation and human well-being. Together, we are moving the needle on increasing global awareness of environmental impacts on the planet and improving conservation outcomes – for a better planet.​​​

For over 20 years, Conservation International, in partnership with Sony, has been working to advance efforts to visually convey the ways humans need nature to thrive. Learn more:
