Our Story

Made in the Wild was created in 2016 by Zoologist Jack Randall to inspire & educate the next generation about the animal world. Whilst sharing educational wildlife videos to Made in the Wild’s digital channels & later producing TV for National Geographic, the content team starting building out “Spotlighting Missions” around the globe. The goal to showcase all species in their natural habitats and help with the monitoring of these species alongside local conservationists and scientists.

As part of this, we launched our Student Field Courses in 2018, supervising Undergraduate Biologists to learn the key field skills they will need for their future careers, whilst having the opportunity to get involved in the conservation research projects that we have partnered with. Our Field Courses are now expanding from initial projects in Zimbabwe and Brazil to Namibia & Australia from 2022/23. To further the mission, in 2022 we began creating new Wildlife Experiences for Families & Naturalists: the “Komodo Dragon Experience” and the “Desert Giants Experience”!


Jack Randall – Founder & Wildlife Guide

Jack Randall is a Zoologist on a mission to meet every species on our planet – up close and personal! Jack began sharing his wild stories whilst traipsing through the jungles of the Amazon researching Anacondas.

The series sees Jack trekking deep into the Australian Outback to research deadly crocodiles, pythons, turtles, feral camels, venomous snakes – and more!
