“Chris Palmer has written a very important book.”  —Foreword by Jane Goodall, Ph.D., DBE Founder, the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace

“Confessions of a Wildlife Filmmaker reveals the scandalous misrepresentations in many television wildlife films. Since an increasing number of people obtain their information of the natural world from television and videos, it is important that we are able to know truth from deception. Chris Palmer’s powerful new book is a must read for all who care about the natural world and the future of our planet.”—Ted Danson, Actor and Environmentalist

“Those amazing “reality” shows and natural history documentaries! Are they fact or fantasy? Real or staged? Sensitive or indifferent to impacts on the animals being filmed and misinformation conveyed to an unwitting public? Are integrity, truth, and ethics being sacrificed by some to improve ratings? Who can be trusted? These timely issues are explored in this deeply personal saga by award-winning film producer Chris Palmer, who pulls no punches as he challenges the media and viewers alike to demand clarity, compassion, and honesty.”—Dr. Sylvia Earle, Ocean Scientist and Explorer

“Chris’s book is important and timely–a call to arms for wildlife filmmakers to do better and be better. Read it, and take moral responsibility for how wildlife is portrayed. There has never been a more important time to make challenging, inspiring wildlife films.”—Mark Deeble and Vicky Stone, Award-Winning Wildlife Filmmakers
