The Women in Ape Conservation and Survival
- Creator & Host of YouTube Channel, 'Apes Like Us'
Gerry Ellis, is an award-winning environmental photographer/film-maker and has documented the lives of endangered species, indigenous cultures and threatened ecosystems across every continent. Inspired by his initial work with Jane Goodall, Ellis is currently working on a multi-year education and public awareness project called Apes Like Us to heighten concern for survival of great apes. Ellis is also the founder and director of the educational nonprofit GLOBIO.
In this talk, Ellis explores how some extraordinary women are influencing great ape survival, through his film-making and social media storytelling, from Jane Goodall to today's unknown heroines.
