Episode 14 Future of Travel: Safari with Conservationists & Filmmakers Dereck & Beverly Joubert
Dereck and Beverly Joubert are filmmakers, innovative hoteliers, and self-described emergency conservationists. In this installment of The Future of Travel, Melissa speaks with the South African couple about what it’s like to spend months at a time alone in nature with nothing but each other, their cameras, and big cats. They share how this unique experience has led them to commit their lives to protecting the African continent and convinced them that tourism is a powerful tool for conservation. Learn why they call themselves emergency conservationists and how their organization Great Plains Foundation and hospitality venture Great Plains Conservation work with locals and travelers to protect the bush, save wildlife, and empower communities. Plus, don’t miss the details of their exciting and ambitious new initiatives, Project Rewild Zambezi and the creation of the first all-female ranger unit.
