About the Documentary
Dr. Alan Rabinowitz is one of the world's leading big cat experts, and has even been called "The Indiana Jones of Wildlife Protection" by TIME Magazine. It's no surprise that BBC has decided to feature him as their big cat expert in its Lost Land of the Tiger series.
Almost 5 million viewers in the UK tuned in to watch the exciting expedition that resulted in video footage of tigers possibly breeding at the highest elevation ever recorded in Bhutan – approximately 13,500 feet. We have known for quite some time, due to the long-standing efforts of Bhutanese, Indonesian and other international tiger conservationists, that tigers have been present at this elevation, as referenced in this scientific publication. This new footage, however, indicates that tigers might be doing more than just passing through.
The original, three-part Lost Land of the Tiger series was aired multiple times in the United States in 2011 by National Geographic Wild. The series will continue to air in 2012. Watch a condensed 45 minute version of the three-part series below, posted by National Geographic.
