Blue Planet 2

In 2001, the BBC led the world with the multi award-winning Blue Planet; now it plans to return to the planet’s oceans. More marine species have been discovered in the past decade than ever before, with an average of 2,000 discoveries per year. Drawing on new filming techniques not available at the time Blue Planet was shot - such as a new gyro-stabilised aerial camera system, remotely operated submarines, 4k digital resolution and new marine tracking techniques - we will capture the marvels of the world’s largest living space.

2016 National Geographic Pristine Seas Expedition to Tristan Da Cunha

In collaboration with the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) and the Tristan da Cunha government, Pristine Seas launched an expedition to Tristan da Cunha in January 2017. Spending 20 days at the archipelago, the team carried out quantitative surveys of shallow flora and fauna, open-water communities, and deep-sea habitats to determine the health of its largely unknown marine environment. The team obtained their data during scuba dives and from baited stereo cameras and deep-water drop cams. They used satellite tags to examine the movements of apex predators, such as sharks, and conducted botanical work and bird and seal studies.Among their findings: Migratory blue sharks—the most heavily fished sharks in the world, highly prized for their fins—may have found a refuge in Tristan da Cunha’s waters. The team saw more blue sharks here than in any other location they’ve sampled.

OKAVANGO - A feature length film by Neil Gelinas for National Geographic Studios

Okavango will be a National Geographic feature-length film that shares an intimate look at the human experience in wilderness: The ups and downs, the vulnerability and humility, the care and caution, the love, the fear, the frustration, the surrender and dependence on water. The team of explorers plan to undertake a two-month crossing of the Okavango River system from the source in Angola all the way 1,000 miles down the river through Namibia’s Caprivi Strip and into an untouched wilderness in the heart of the Okavango Delta in Botswana. They will travel like baYei River Bushmen and be subject to the dangers of encountering the worlds largest-remaining populations of elephants, thousands of hippos, 15–foot crocodiles, and some of the last–remaining super–prides of lions on Earth.
