SANDESH KADUR
NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC EXPLORER/FELLOW & WILDLIFE FILMMAKER

BAFTA award-winning film-maker and National Geographic Fellow, Sandesh Kadur, is known most recently for his work on Netflix’s ‘Our Planet’ and National Geographic’s ‘Wild Cats of India’. Kadur creates award-winning wildlife documentary films and photography books exposing the need to conserve threatened species and habitats around the world. His documentary films have aired worldwide on such prominent networks as National Geographic, the BBC, Netflix etc. Sandesh’s work has won a slew of prestigious international awards, including a 2017 EMMY nomination and the 2017 BAFTA for his work on BBC Planet Earth II. He hopes that his photographs, videos, and documentaries will reveal places and species people rarely see and will inspire new passion to protect them. His work spans from filming orphaned clouded leopards being rehabilitated back to the Himalayan jungle to filming the nesting of endangered sea turtles in Mexico. “I help people connect emotionally with the beauty of the wilderness, bring conservation issues to light, and raise awareness in a way that fosters respect and concern. I don’t just want to take pretty pictures,” he says. “I also try to make powerful graphic images that expose how much we are losing.”
