With David Attenbrough, Thomas alongside co-director Matthew Day brought The Wind in the Willows back to highlight loss of habitat for The Wildlife Trusts.

The animated trailer racked up a social reach of 17 million and charmed the press with 195 pieces of coverage, from BBC Radio 4 to the Mirror and ITV news. It was screened at over 500 cinemas with film posters running through the country from London to Glasgow.
