Yaz Ellis is an award-winning wildlife filmmaker and cinematographer; recognised by Jackson Wild, the American Society of Cinematographers, National Geographic and the United Nations.

Based in Vienna, Austria, she focuses in particular on how wildlife is adapting to and challenged by our increasingly urban world. Subjects include: Cheeky marmots and the complicated relationship with humans and feeding them; urban beavers living amongst people, flower-eating ground squirrels battling habitat destruction; love-struck toads crossing our roads and wild hamsters finding sanctuary in the middle of a city.

Each film is created to connect people with wildlife and inspire them to take action to protect it. Find out more about Yaz.
