Join Nat Geo Explorers-in-Residence Dereck and Beverly Joubert for the world premiere screening of their new film The Unlikely Leopard. Outspoken, passionate explorers who founded the Big Cats Initiative with National Geographic to reverse the decline in the world’s big cat populations, the Jouberts have filmed and photographed
Africa’s big cats for more than 25 years. Enjoy a heartwarming tale that follows the leopard cub Dikeledi and his fearless and patient mother through toddler clumsiness to teenage growls. Join us afterwards for a reception in the National Geographic Dining Hall.

$10 from every ticket sale will support the Big Cats Initiative. Find out more.

Read about a new exhibition of Beverly Joubert’s photos and view a gallery on the Nat Geo News Watch blog.
