From the Director/Producer behind Nat Geo Wild's "Walking with Giraffes" comes "Catching Giants" -- a 1x60 documentary by iniosante inc (Director's Cut is an 88min 1x120). "Catching Giants" was just named Best Feature Film at the Wildlife Conservation Film Festival in NY.
In December of 2016, giraffe were reclassified as VULNERABLE to extinction on the IUCN Red List after research showed their population decreased by 40% in the last decade. "Last of the Longnecks" was the first film to focus on this story and its success caused news of this reclassification to spread like wildfire. The question now circulating throughout the globe is: what is being done to stop the decline of giraffes?
Enter Giraffe Conservation 2.0. Filmed in 4K across South Africa, "Catching Giants" takes viewers on an incredible journey alongside the conservationists, researchers and animal specialists who are making it their mission to learn more about giraffes. Over the course of the two week expedition, 20 researchers from across the planet will try safely capture and GPS collar 20 giraffes in one of the most ambitious giraffe research projects ever attempted. But catching giants is a dangerous game with the potential on both sides to be fatal.
The true value of "Catching Giants" lies in the fact that the results of this project and the discoveries of these world leading biologists will be applied to other giraffe populations throughout Africa and the awareness raised from this film will be invaluable to wildlife managers and conservationists throughout the continent.
