“The Last Lions” trailer

Opening on February 18th, The Last Lions, a National Geographic film, follows a lioness and her two cubs’ dramatic journey of survival in the Okavango Delta of Botswana. Through the lions’ story the film addresses the catastrophic decline in lion populations across the continent, which have fallen from 450,000 to some 20,000 over the past 50 years.

Shooting took place in Botswana over 7 years by veteran filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert.

Stay tuned as Mongabay.com will be doing an interview with the Jouberts in the next few weeks.
