This veteran traded his gun for a camera—to protect grizzlies
After serving in the Vietnam War, legendary eco-warrior and grizzly bear expert Doug Peacock spent years alone in the Wyoming and Montana wilderness observing the animals. This time in the wild changed the course of his life. With the protection of Yellowstone grizzlies now under threat, Peacock reflects on the importance of habitat and why he continues to fight for wild causes in this short from Ben Moon and Peak Design. The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the world and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. To submit a film for consideration, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of National Geographic Partners.
