'Four Women Prepare to Tackle a Wild River': Behind the Scenes

National Geographic Young Explorer Grant recipient Amber Valenti talks about her all-female expedition down the Amur River, one of the last free-flowing rivers in the world, and the importance of freshwater conservation in this interview with the Banff Centre.

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's mission of inspiring people to care about the planet. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of the National Geographic Society.
