Follow Earth Angels around the globe as we travel with the world's most beautiful models, seeking solutions to our greatest obstacles. Combining documentary, high end photoshoots and short highly shareable digital content, our goal is to create a beautiful and inspiring series that creates maximum reach and maximum impact.
Earth Angels will work with boots on the ground with associated non-profit organisations while on location filming. The films will be used as a tool to raise millions of dollars for the most efficient and effectively run not-for-profit organisations in the world, to support the illuminating of global issues.
Endangered Species - Africa
Some of the worlds most beloved animals are going extinct. Kenya is known for its safaris and national parks. With elephants facing so many threats, it’s no surprise we find them on the endangered species list. Some of the main struggles they face are poaching, loss of habitation and lack of water. Big cats that you hope to see on these safaris are either on the threatened or endangered list. Because of the rise in temperatures, cheetahs are having a hard time reproducing, extreme droughts are bringing tick born diseases to lions, and big cats overall are facing a world of new problems. Giraffe numbers are dwindling across Africa because of poaching and habitat loss caused by human population growth, according to wildlife experts, and it's happening largely unnoticed. As humans come into contact with chimpanzees more readily through bushmeat availability and open-access logging roads, the spread of zoonotic diseases such as Ebola, a deadly hemorrhagic fever, threaten both human and ape populations.

Animals as Entertainment - Thailand
Animals in the entertainment world live a life of torture and deprivation. They are often kept in cages too small for them and are forced to work long hours without food, water or rest. These animals are separated from there families at young ages and killed when they become sick or too old to perform.
Melting Ice Caps - The High Arctic
Everyone is well aware of the relationship between global warming and the rising sea levels. With Alaska’s glaciers rapidly melting it creates a substantial problem for both humans and animals. Scientists from the University of Alaska have calculated that the state will receive roughly a foot of water every seven years due to the melting glaciers. With less ice and more water, animals such as polar bears are drowning in the search of finding resting points. The rising water means flooding in costal communities and more severe storms.
Deforestation - Brazil
Rainforests play a huge role in helping stabilize the earth’s climate. The problem is as we emit higher carbon levels we’re also deforesting the rainforest making it impossible for these dense jungles to keep up with regulating climate. Brazil is home to the largest area of the Amazon Rainforest which houses 10% of species known to the world. The good news is there are people fighting to protect this magical place. But even if we can save it from deforestation it still faces droughts and other threats. 70% of the earths land is used to produce grain primarily to feed the animals we eat.
Deforestation is indeed the primary threat to the orangutan, a species of great ape known for its keen intelligence and the fact that it's the largest animal to live primarily in trees. The result has been the loss of some 80 percent of the orangutans' habitat in just the last two decades.
Domestic Animal Welfare Abuse
In the last twenty years, researchers and advocates have learned a lot about how pet abuse and domestic violence are related, and how important this relationship is for early identification of both human and animal victims of abuse. Over time, some information may have become distorted or oversimplified. Multiple studies have found that from 49% to 71% of battered women reported that their pets had been threatened, harmed, and or killed by their partners. In a national survey, 85% of domestic violence shelters indicated that women coming to their facilities told of incidents of pet abuse.
Global Warming Effects on Food Production - India
With India having such a large coastal line, it is a country more vulnerable to global warming. They have already experienced devastating floods in their crop fields as well as severe droughts. The countries who will experience the tragedies of global warming the most are the poorer countries. The countries who can’t afford to loose crops or homes, and who can’t withstand the rising heat. The countries like vibrant India.
Human Trafficking - USA
An estimated 600,000 to 800,000 people are trafficked throughout the world every year. Many sex trafficking victims are brought into the industry between the ages of 12 to 14 years old and there are an estimated 20 million slaves in the world today. This is a global issue happening all over the world, even in the United States of America.
The Ivory Trade - China
The demand for ivory to make decorative items, jewelry, and trinkets is pushing elephants to the brink of extinction. Burgeoning demand fuels poaching and trafficking, both of which are as dangerous as global arms, human and drug trafficking. In addition to supporting anti-poaching measures, Earth Angels Destination Change will address all the links in the ivory chain, from source to transit to consumption.
Homelessness - USA
There are many different reasons for why people become homeless such as escaping abuse, veterans with disabilities from war, mental illness, etc. The government hasn’t come up with a good plan to end homelessness in America, but there are people who have. It is inexcusable for a country so rich to go to sleep with children on the street.
Prison System - USA
One of the purposes of prison is to rehabilitate inmates preparing them to be reunited with society. However, 4 out of 10 prisoners will end up back in prison within 3 years of being released. Jails and prisons in the United States are packed with mentally ill who should be in hospitals, and addicts in desperate need of rehabilitation facilities.
Adopt Don’t Shop - USA
There are so many pets that need homes in the United States. 4 to 5 million are killed every year. By shopping in pet stores rather than shelters, you’re supporting the production of more animals while there are already so many loosing their lives. Animals from pet stores usually come from breeders where the animals are mistreated and inbreed resulting in health issues down the road.
Meat Factories - USA
Meat factories use around 16,000 litres of water to produce 1kg of beef. Livestock is accountable for 18% of green house gas admission, which is 40% more than all forms of transportation combined.
And many more…
