You look straight ahead. You try to breathe normally. You can smell the scent of the huge cat that is staring back. You are a cameraman. He is the King of Beasts. Your only thought is "I hope he has already eaten today." Let National Geographic Explorers-in-Residence Dereck and Beverly Joubert bring you closer to the power and majesty of the regal African lion. With fewer than 25,000 wild lions now left on Earth, the award-winning filmmakers and naturalists make a passionate plea to readers to take an active role in securing a future for these magnificent creatures.
In this series, the experts at National Geographic take you out of the library, out of the zoo, and into the wild! Each book includes practical advice from the experts, a comprehensive reference section, glossary, scientific experiment, and more--all designed to stimulate participation.
