Simon Trevor, Founder of African Environmental Film Foundation "leads the AEFF film production team. He is ideally qualified to do this, having served as a Warden in the Kenya National Parks and having over 40 years’ experience of wildlife filming (for which he has won numerous international awards), as well as a long-standing involvement with conservation issues in Kenya and Tanzania.

"In addition to numerous wildlife documentaries made for the prestigious Survival Anglia television series, Simon’s film credits include Out of Africa, Gorillas in the Mist, White Hunter, Black Heart, and The Color Purple.

"In 1998, Simon gave up commercial filmmaking to launch the African Environmental Film Foundation, with the aim of showing people the real story of what is happening to the wild animals and wild places of Africa, and the effect that environmental issues have on the welfare of people across the continent."[1]
