Transcript of Big Cats
Although they speak out against poaching, the couple shows the brutal side of wild cats, rather than trying to convince their audience that they are like house pets. Through their talk, they tell personal stories. A tale of a leopard that kills a mother baboon, but then cares for the child.
The Joubert's try to connect with their audience on a more human level, as well, speaking about how they drowned their jeep, as well as nearly two million dollars worth of camera equipment.
They attempt (and succeed) to shock with footage of a number of lionesses hunting an elephant, and talk about how "death begins in the eyes".
Accompanying their talk are a number of amusing and breathtaking photographs to keep their audience engaged. I found the Joubert's presentation to be very successful, in that they covered just about everything, and did so in a way that kept their audience engaged. Of course, they seemed to hit more on pathos than logos, but as they seem to have quite a bit of ethos between them, I would consider that acceptable, especially considering their audience. You'd want to encourage people to do their own research and this talk would be a good push in the right direction. "Life lessons from big cats" by Bryony Grover http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Gc2MBpfqGc#t=1m30s Summary In their video, Beverly and Dereck Joubert talk about their recent time in Africa and a few of the big cats they encountered. This includes a leopard that they tracked from birth to the end of her life to a pride of lions adapted to hunting in water. They also discuss conservation and their own personal stories on the African plain.
