Watch the Trailer for "The Last Lions" to Help Save the Lions in Botswana

Posted on Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011 4:40 PM by Scott Jentsch

National Geographic Entertainment has a movie in theaters right now called The Last Lions, and they are running a promotion right now where they will donate $0.10 to lion and big cat conservation in Botswana for every viewing of the trailer on YouTube.

The top-end goal is 1 million views, which will hit the contribution maximum of $100,000. They are up to 207,000 views right now, so go ahead and click on the Read link below to make National Geographic pull another dime out of their pockets!

In The Last Lions, filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert follow the epic journey of the lioness named Ma di Tau ("Mother of Lions") as she battles to protect her cubs against the daunting onslaught of enemies to ensure their survival.

This gripping real-life saga unfolds inside a stark reality: lions are vanishing from the wild. In the last 50 years, lion populations have plummeted from 450,00 to as few as 20,000. Dereck and Beverly Joubert weave their dramatic storytelling and breathtaking, up-close footage around a resonating question: are Ma di Tau and her young to be among the last lions? Or will we as humans, having seen how tough, courageous and poignant their lives in the wild are, be moved to make a difference?
