My name is Alex Braczkowski and I'm a big cat biologist from Kwazulu-Natal, SA. I have researched lions, caracal and leopards across South Africa and Uganda and filmed other big cats across three continents. In 2014 I graduated from the University of Oxford with a Masters degree examining aspects surrounding the hunting of leopards in Africa. Since leaving Oxford I have worked for Steve Winter and National Geographic as a photographic assistant on magazine and television stories describing leopards, jaguars and lions. I am currently working towards my PhD at the University of Queensland in Australia, and have just wrapped filming a new National Geographic film on the incredible tree-climbing lions of southwestern Uganda. Cover photo: Steve Winter.

Story


I believe if the last of Africa's big cats are to be saved, it will only happen through locally led projects and initiatives.

Cat conservation needs the same synergy as that found in lion prides. Their teamwork, support and strategy when hunting is inspiring.

Writing for and talking to kids about conservation is my passion. They're the future, and the hope for the protection of Africa's cats and wildlife. There's purity when you look into a child's eyes - and if you're honest they'll give you their time.

Collaboration and partnership are two of my core values. I will work with anyone interested in saving the worlds big cats and the communities living alongside them.
