World Premiere "Born to Explore" Special - Namibia: Land of the Cheetah

In this one-hour world premiere, Born to Explore travels to Namibia for an in-depth look at the most endangered cat in Africa - the cheetah. Explorer Richard Wiese discovers why Namibia is known as the cheetah capital of the world. He meets Dr. Laurie Marker, founder of the Cheetah Conservation Fund to see what’s being done to save these cats from extinction. Loss of habitat, human-wildlife conflict and the illegal wildlife trade have impacted cheetah populations worldwide and there are now less than 8,000 left in the wild.

Join us in Namibia: Land of the Cheetah.

Presented by WGBH-Boston and airing on PBS stations nationwide in October.

Born to Explore has won 2 Daytime Emmy® Awards and earned 13 Emmy® nominations--more than any other travel/adventure series in the last five years. BTE has also won 4 Parents' Choice Awards, a CINE Golden Eagle and 35 Tellys.
