The Gecko Project

The Gecko Project is an investigative journalism initiative established by Earthsight to shine a light on the corruption driving land grabs and the destruction of tropical rainforests. It seeks to create and maintain a sense of urgency over the role of large land deals, predominantly for food production, in some of the most pressing global challenges: climate change, the collapse of biodiversity, food security, and the rights of indigenous peoples and other rural communities. We aim to achieve this through the production and promotion of in-depth, high-quality and accessible journalism, underpinned by evidence. 

Relevant Films have provided photography and video support to the project creating mini documentary stories as well as following the investigations on the ground.
