About UPROAR

UPROAR is a new ad-supported, short form, mobile centric media company with a mission to tell stories about the amazing world we live in, inspiring people to share, connect and get involved and providing them with simple ways to do so. We are focused on capturing, presenting, promoting and telling great moments and adventures from the natural world. UPROAR is a platform driven by stories that connects people with causes they care about, enabling individuals to make a difference in the world and to rebrand conservation as fiercely optimistic rather than doom and gloom.

Other companies present nature and wildlife in amazingly compelling ways, and it is very popular content (Planet Earth, National Geographic etc.), but none of them have set out to change the world the way we have. We are a startup company with a highly seasoned and award-winning founding leadership team of executive level people from the worlds of media, wildlife conservation, technology, and social media/production. We are building a team to do something special and looking for like-minded trail blazers to join us with a spirit of enthusiasm, optimism, and faith.

The UPROAR Approach

We generate high production value content highlighting not just wildlife but the people behind conservation, and share it with communities online via YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, etc., distributing and promoting UPROAR content to become THE mobile place for wildlife. We inspire audiences to show up, feeding their passion for adventure and the natural world, tantalizing them into deeper experiences, and connecting them to wildlife entrepreneurs through the UPROAR Marketplace.

The UPROAR Marketplace provides a platform for our audience to discover deeper experiences that can access, buy or participate in - ranging from travel to supporting and donating to their favorite species, professionals, or organizations. Our objective is to build the world's largest catalog of wildlife entrepreneurs, conservation projects, scientists, professionals, organizations and more. This is where our viewers turn into our engaged community “ecosystem” to do good things for the world.
