About Bob Poole

Bob Poole grew up in Kenya where his family spent much of their time with the abundant wildlife that thrived there during the 1960s and 1970s. Poole’s unique upbringing gave him an appreciation and curiosity of the natural world, a highly adventurous spirit, and a strong sense of self-reliance.

His career in began as a teenager while working on a film about elephants for National Geographic.  With a university degree in Earth Science, he became a Cinematographer working around the world on natural history programs.

An Emmy award-winning filmmaker, his extensive credit list includes landmark shows for PBS, BBC, and National Geographic. Bob’s passion for wildlife conservation has taken him to some of the world’s most remote locations. 

Working on the other side of the camera, Bob fronts shows and Live TV for PBS, BBC and National Geographic.  He is on tour with National Geographic LIVE speaking in cities across the world and is a Fellow with the Explorers Club.

About Nature Roars Back


A childhood in East Africa gave Emmy Award-winning cinematographer Bob Poole a fierce curiosity about the natural world as well as an adventurous spirit. For a six-part PBS/Nat Geo International series, Bob drew on that experience to document the rebirth of a lost Eden: Mozambique’s Gorongosa National Park, a jewel of Africa’s parks system until civil war almost destroyed it. There, he joined forces with rangers and scientists (including his sister, renowned elephant researcher Joyce Poole), on perhaps the biggest conservation project on the planet. He’ll share secrets of filming lions, crocs, elephants, and spectacular scenery, and tell how he cracked the “Gorongosa code”—learning to read the landscape and find prime locations for filming the park’s spectacular wildlife.
