Shot Entirely on Canon: National Geographic's latest documentary is set against the backdrop of Kruger National Park. Kevin Pietersen teams up with the outback wrangler Matt Wright, former cricketer Graeme Smith, and orphan rhino mum Petronel Nieuwoudt in a 2 part documentary series, SAVE THIS RHINO, airing in the lead up to the world cup of cricket.
Shot with the support of Cisco, Dimension Data and Land Rover South Africa, Save This Rhino follows the desperate efforts in South Africa to save the critically endangered rhinoceros, whose population is declining rapidly at the hands of poachers hunting them for the highly sought-after rhino horn.
On average, three rhinos are killed every day. If we carry on this trajectory, this majestic and sensitive animal will be extinct by 2025.
Save This Rhino is a thought-provoking and emotionally-charged documentary series following the struggles and successes of the courageous men and women who are on the frontlines of this conservational war to prevent rhino extinction. Prepare to be inspired by their resilience, bravery, and unwavering dedication.
Canon Australia was proud to support the production, equipping legendary award-winning filmmaker Taylor Steele and his lead camera operator, Thomaz Labanca with the ultimate Canon film cameras—EOS C700, EOS C300 Mark II, EOS C200—and a range of cine and EF lenses to tell this story.
