The Rare and Exotic Animals – National Geographic Documentary

The Rare and Exotic Animals – National Geographic Documentary. The white lion is a rare color mutation of the Timbavati area. White lions are the same as the tawny African Lion (Panthera leo krugeri) found in some wildlife reserves in South Africa and in zoos around the world. White lions are not a separate subspecies and are thought to be indigenous to the Timbavati region of South Africa for centuries, although the earliest recorded sighting in this region was in 1938. Regarded as divine by locals, white lions first came to public attention in the 1970s in Chris McBride’s book The White Lions of Timbavati. Up until 2009, when the first pride of white lions was reintroduced to the wild, it was widely believed that the white lion could not survive in the wild. It is for this reason that a large part of the population of white lions now reside in zoos.

Wildlife conservation and the art of letting go | Geraldine Morelli | TEDxWandsworth

Africa stole her heart and its wildlife changed her life. Through volunteering in a wildlife rehabilitation centre in South Africa, Geraldine learned how we should treat and respect wild animals, precisely by accepting that they are wild and should not be domesticated even though they fascinate us. Wild animals are facing tough times and we may feel powerless in the face of their fast decline. She tells us how we can help conservationists and organisations on the ground by not interfering in their lives and especially by learning to let go.

Geraldine was born in a small town in the South of France where she grew up by the beach and always had a passion for animals. Geraldine moved to Paris and graduated as an IT Systems Engineer and went on to work as a programmer and web designer. She is currently the Head of Smartphone Marketing at a London-based international telecoms company.

However, it was during a safari holiday to Kenya in 2005 which re-ignited her yearning to work with animals. This led to a three month career break where she volunteered at a primate rehabilitation centre in South Africa and her passion for primates was born. In 2014, Geraldine formed her own animal charity Wild & Free – which supports the rescue, rehabilitation and reintroduction of primates and other wild animals around the world.

Geraldine is married with two young children, a full time job, and manages the charity. She says, ‘There isn’t a dull moment in my life, and I’m happier than ever’.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
