Fox Guardians

At Fox Guardians we seek to inspire respect and compassion for foxes - both urban and in the country - through our films and actions, helping to balance out their unwarranted negative press. We create educational, entertaining and political films about foxes that we hope can be catalysts in encouraging more humans to become fox guardians.

Who we are

Find out more about the founder of Fox Guardians

Dora Nightingale, Founder and Director of Fox Guardians

Dora is a film-maker with a passion for wildlife. She uses her skills as a film-maker to create much-needed good press for foxes. She set up Fox Guardians to reach a wide audience with her educational and entertaining fox films and hopes to inspire many people to become fox guardians.

Dora’s life changed forever when in the summer of 2016 two fox cubs strolled into her in garden in broad daylight. This was the day she became “foxed”. When the cubs – who were named Freya and Faith – returned daily for four months throughout the summer, Dora started to document their lives on film. She made a point of never touching or taming the fox cubs but filming unobtrusively.
