Capturing the Beauty of Africa’s Wildlife and Fighting to Save It

We lose five elephants every hour, five lions per day, and a rhino every six hours. We are in a race against time to save these magnificent animals from extinction. For the past 30 years, award-winning filmmakers and National Geographic Explorers Dereck and Beverly Joubert have dedicated their lives to protecting and saving key African species. Through the years the Jouberts have created more than 25 films for National Geographic, written 11 books, and founded the Big Cats Initiative with National Geographic, which currently funds 86 grants in 27 countries. Join the Jouberts as they take the stage to share both their passion and amazing work they have accomplished in the battle to protect Africa's incredible wildlife.
