Wild Lessons: Bertie Gregory's NatGeo Docuseries
In a world where headlines often emphasize environmental challenges, my recent interview with wildlife filmmaker Bertie Gregory, featured in NatGeo’s "ANIMALS UP CLOSE WITH BERTIE GREGORY," sheds light on a different narrative — one of triumph and hope. His docuseries doesn't just showcase extraordinary animals; it shines a spotlight on the heroes dedicated to conservation and the environment.
Here are some lessons I gleaned:
🌊 Lesson 1: The Impact of Persistence 🌊
While many envision wildlife filmmaking as idyllic moments spent with animals, Bertie paints a more accurate picture — persistence and passion are paramount. Filming wildlife isn't about being patient; it's about channeling yourself and sticking with it. His 219 days in the field for the series is a testament to the power of dedication and patience.
🐳 Lesson 2: Discover the Unseen 🐳
Bertie's lens doesn't just capture animals; it unveils their untold stories. Rather than generic wildlife footage, he focuses on individual creatures and their families. His dedication to capturing these stories reminds us to look beyond the surface, as every creature has a tale to tell.
🌟 Lesson 3: Celebrate Environmental Success 🌟
One of the most inspiring aspects of Bertie's work is his commitment to celebrating conservation victories. His encounters with communities turning the tide for nature underscore that, even in the face of adversity, positive change is possible. Take the example of Misool in Indonesia: once ravaged by dynamite fishing, it now boasts thriving coral reefs and a rebounding shark population.
Bertie's "ANIMALS UP CLOSE" docuseries premieres on Disney+. Tune in to witness the incredible stories of resilience, determination, and the remarkable individuals who remind us that, together, we can shape a brighter future for our planet.
