The last quarter of the 20th century galvanized an attempt both to explore and to preserve what was at stake, for the first moment, to the global degradation of natural environments and the threat to possibly millions of animals.

One needs to encourage a link with nature in order to participate individuals on economic problems such as the biodiversity crisis. This link should be based on a simple and convincing message on the significance and the danger of depleting wildlife.

Cinema provides a significant chance to share a message to a wider public.

Given their international reach, film depictions could be crucial in increasing consciousness and involvement with the public, as their mental implications for the viewer are increasing.

Movies provide potential ways for a broad crowd to share biodiversity, nature shows, and exotic or uncommon animals.

Although, Babul Films Society has recognized the importance of sharing nature conservation message through movies for a better impact on society.
