Secrets  of the Elephants at the Emmy Awards

Dr. Paula Kahumbu attended the 75th Annual Emmy Awards that was held on January 15th, 2024. The documentary series “Secrets of the Elephants” was nominated for the prestigious Emmy Awards in two categories: Outstanding Cinematography for a Nonfiction Program and Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series.

“Secrets of the Elephants”, produced by National Geographic and Oxford Scientific Films Limited, takes you on a deep dive into the extraordinary lives of diverse elephant families. It highlights their unique personalities and surprising similarities to us humans, shedding light on their intelligence and family bonds. This series truly celebrates the wonders of African nature and the tireless efforts of wildlife filmmakers.

In the wake of the event, Dr. Paula took to her Twitter account to express gratitude and excitement. Though ‘Secrets of the Elephants” did not take home the trophy, being nominated is a tremendous honor. As she aptly put it, “It’s a win for elephants, African nature, wildlife filmmakers, and me!”
