Why we need to save the big cats.

Last December at TEDWomen I was fortunate enough to see this incredibly inspiring speech by Beverly + Dereck Joubert. Documentary filmmakers Beverly and Dereck Joubert have worked to conserve wildlife for more than 25 years. As National Geographic Explorers in Residence they live in the bush, filming and photographing lions and leopards in their natural habitat in Botswana. With stunning footage (some never before seen), they discuss their personal relationships with these majestic animals -- and their quest to save the big cats from human threats.

Watch the speech here:

February sees the release of their new movie "The Last Lions". ROAR AFRICA will host an evening at the cinema on the opening night in New York City. Beverly and Dereck will be present for the Q&A session. Check back for details.
