Nature Is Speaking

With the Nature Is Speaking series, Conservation International gives nature a voice. The goal: To reframe why conservation is important and reinforce a simple message — Nature doesn’t need people. People need nature.

The series includes films that personify different aspects of nature narrated by some of the biggest names in Hollywood, including Harrison Ford, Julia Roberts, Liam Neeson, Lupita Nyong’o, Edward Norton, Robert Redford, Penelope Cruz, Reese Witherspoon, Salma Hayek and Lee Pace — as well as more than 50 international artists. The films have been viewed more than 100 million times around the world in 10 languages.
