Dereck and Beverly recently took part in the Jackson Wild Conservation Frontline webinars. You can watch the whole event here and learn a bit more about Dereck and Beverly Joubert and why conservation is so important to everything that they do ... “We create harmony and the securing of the future of natural ecosystems,” Joubert said. “We’ve seen so much pressure on elephants, lions and rhinos and, at the same time, spiraling poverty. And so we have to do whatever we can to make this planet a better place.”
