Filmmakers and conservationists Dereck and Beverly Joubert come face-to-face with a herd of angry elephants.

Their only option is to stare the elephants down.

If they try to flee, it could provoke an attack.

Why so close when you have such lenses

Smaart Fon

Those photographers were much too close. I'd say they are on target for becoming recipients of the Darwin Gene Pool Award with reckless behavior like that. I dont see a respectful or nature-conscious mindset in this behavior. They are simply after the "big photo shot", no matter the expense to themselves or the animals.

I Love Elephants, and wish I could have been that close to them <3
Thank You for sharing 🙂

I am sure you are well-meaning, conservation-oriented, nature videographers. I don't know your work. But in this case, I have to say – and you said it yourselves too in the clip: Too close!

That would get anyone's attention! Well done Joubert's for keeping calm! Have watched your videos for years, thank you for the exceptional insights into wildlife that you have given us all!
