Episode 3
Paul Hilton

Directed by Jorik Dozy

“I’ve spent 20 years documenting wildlife crime and the destruction of our planet.

And I have to ask myself, does every species have to be extinct before we wake up?”

Paul Hilton


Meet Paul Hilton, a prolific conservation photojournalist and wildlife crime consultant. Paul has spent the past twenty years traveling the globe documenting crimes against our planet, from the shark fin trade to illegal wildlife smuggling and the palm oil industry.

His mission: show the world what’s going with his powerful images from across the globe. He believes that people often don’t want to see images of animals suffering or nature being destroyed. But if we don’t see these pictures, how will we ever stop them from happening?

Paul has won the prestigious World Press Photo Award for his body of work on the Shark Fin Industry and was awarded Wildlife Photographer of the Year in 2012, 2014 and 2016.
