Our film demonstrates the fragility of the ecosystem, as well as the importance of participation of each of us in saving our planet,” said Kirill Komarov, First Deputy Director General of Rosatom while speaking at the premiere.
In her video message Freida Pinto, the Project Ambassador, said: “I believe that the project is very important for a multitude of reasons. It is important because it shows all of us the beauty of a natural world that has been hidden from the human eyes for so many years. It is also important because Wild Edens takes the chance to highlight the risks that we all face if climate change is not something we pay attention to.”

Our film did not set out just to film habitat destruction or environmental damage.

We wanted to tell the story of these fragile ecosystems through some Turkey’s most endangered species. At intimate, important moments in their life cycle. Be that mating, hunting or just surviving”.
