Today is International Cheetah Day. What better day to release the trailer for our upcoming documentary The African Survivors.  Like many other animals big cats worldwide are under threat—for many populations, local extinctions are imminent and they are racing for survival. 

Whilst on our travels, we have got to know the individual personalities of the animals we captured and that has inspired us to speak out on on their behalf, to be their voice. Through our films and our photography, we can continue to highlight the issues they face. Wildlife and nature are our greatest treasures – priceless and irreplaceable. The African Survivors will focus on the relationship between animals and their environment. 

The project is going well and we are honoured to be able to spend time with these magnificent animals. We still have some more filming to do in 2018 but we’re getting there. Projects such as these take time, energy, sleepless nights and countless hours of filming but we’re driven by our passion, the love for the African bush, for wildlife and bigcats. We hope you’ll enjoy this short glimpse into our life and we’ll keep you posted with news from « The African Survivors ».
