LONDON, UK, March 15, 2024 / — Discovery Channel and Genshin Impact have jointly released the short film Voices of Nature, to raise awareness for a variety of fragile natural habitats and to inspire awe for the beauty of nature. Fans were asked what they imagined nature would tell us, if it could talk, which led to countless of replies with excellent statements, both warning and hopeful.

Voices of Nature takes a playful approach of various natural landscapes in a simultaneous live session informing the audience about what they do and why they are important to us humans, before shown in the editing room chatting with the film director. The film ends with informative data about pollution and damage to nature, while the main focus is on the beauty and profound value of nature, with an immersive and majestic ambiance.

The producers were joined by a powerful team of famous actors, explorers and environmental activists to give a human voice to each featured landscape (in order of appearance):

• The Ocean is voiced by Kit Harington, the actor who starred as Jon Snow in the critically acclaimed and Emmy award-winning HBO drama series “Game of Thrones.” Harington received two times Emmy nominations and one Golden Globe nomination in 2020.

• The Coral Reef gets spoken by Lily Cole, the environmental activist, author of Who Cares Wins, and filmmaker. Lily is Patron of the Environmental Justice Foundation and has worked with The World Land Trust & WWF

• The Snowy Mountain speaks through the voice of Max Djenohan, the elite survivalist and athlete who starred in Discovery Channel shows like Naked and Afraid, First Man Out, and Race to Survive Alaska among others and is engaged in giving more people access to the outdoors.

• The Forest is represented by the voice of Kate Humble, who has been presenting programs and writing articles and books for the last twenty years. Her latest credits include Animal Park, Springwatch, Autumnwatch, Lambing Live, Living With Nomads, Back to the Land and Escape to the Farm. Her latest book is Where the Hearth Is: Stories of Home.

• The Desert speaks through the voice of Ed Stafford, the celebrated real-life outdoor explorer who’s had countless encounters with both the dangers and the beauty of deserts around the world in Discovery Channel shows like Marooned and First Man Out.

The short film avoids lecturing or guilt-shaming the audience, critical data is shown in a factual way, such as:

• Up to 12 million metric tons: That’s how much plastic we dump into the oceans each year. That’s about 26 billion pounds every single year. By 2050, ocean plastic will outweigh all of the ocean’s fish.

• According to satellite data from 2002 to 2019, global tropical forests loss averaged 3.6 million hectares (9 million acres), an area larger than Belgium.

The film is accompanied by an educational web event starting March 16, where interested viewers can deepen their knowledge through reading and mini-quizzes. At offline events, fans are invited to buy Genshin Impact merchandize, the proceeds of which are fully donated to Cool Earth who work with indigenous people to protect ancient rainforests.
