Last Wild Places: Gorongosa
Sarah Joseph, National Geographic Society | 2019 | 12 min
For 15 years, Mozambique was engulfed in a brutal civil war that devastated human and wildlife populations alike. Now, in part by focusing on empowering and educating women, Gorongosa National Park has become a model of successful conservation efforts. In this short film, follow elephant expert Dominique Gonçalves as she shares the powerful ways the park is working with local communities and gaining a new generation of brave women rangers and scientists.

Ross Kauffman, Xan Parker, Zara Duffy, Fisher Stevens | 2019 | 91 min
In the span of only a handful of generations, the tiger has been transformed from a venerated creature with a role in our cultural consciousness into a major source of revenue—and the population of wild tigers in Asia has dropped from over one hundred thousand to less than four thousand. Tigerland illustrates how shifting political realities in Russia and India created a lucrative poaching underworld that decimated the tiger population, and how one Russian scientist and a conservationist family in India fight for the tiger’s survival.
