This video has been passed around in the National Geographic office today. Those are some big wild cats!
BUT Jimmy is right about one thing, Nat Geo Wild is airing Big Cat Week this December. Big Cat Week is an extension of the National Geographic Society’s Big Cats Initiative, a long-term commitment to stop poaching, save habitat, and sound the call that big steps are needed to save big cats around the world. The seven-night television event features visually stunning and powerfully resonant stories of nature’s fiercest felines from some of the world’s best natural history filmmakers. Join Dereck and Beverly Joubert on their lifelong odyssey into the soul of big cats. Zoom in close with John Varty and the mother leopard he has filmed intimately for nearly two decades. Follow Kire Godal as she films the Maasai warriors who hold the fate of their lion population in the balance. And march with Tanzania’s big cats while they battle through the worst drought in decades.
