Rewilding the West
Bringing back the rarest of the rare
We're producing a web-series about the profound reconnection with nature that comes from volunteering for conservation programs, an awakening to what’s at risk of extinction, and a wildly fun adventure to far-flung islands and remote wilderness areas!
We’ve spent the last few years working alongside actor and passionate conservation volunteer George Shevtsov, on his quest to help save some of the rarest animals in the world.
George has a wonderful sense of humour and thirst for adventure, and his passion for the environment is inspiring. Our hope is that this series will encourage others to volunteer their own time to programs such as the ones George volunteers for, or donate to the charities raising funds to help save these endangered species.
Rewilding the West will be available via the Riggs Australia socials and YouTube channel, and will help raise awareness of endangered species and the wonderful volunteers and scientists who are conducting this important conservation work.
George takes us on a fascinating journey of discovery around Western Australia, as he accompanies scientists working with several animals so rare they were thought to be extinct (until being recently rediscovered), and shows us the drastic measures being taken to save them.
