Saba Douglas-Hamilton

Saba Douglas-Hamilton (b. 1970) is a Kenyan wildlife conservationist, television presenter, and documentary film producer. Her father was an English zoologist, and her mother was an Italian-Kenyan conservationist, so she had her inspiration from an early age. She first attended school in Kenya, then United World College of the Atlantic in Wales, before coming to the University of St Andrews.

After graduating in 1993 with a Master of Arts in Social Anthropology, she began working with the Save the Rhino Trust in Namibia, Kenya. Douglas-Hamilton first started working in film in 1997 with the BBC Natural History Unit. Since then, she has presented the Big Cat Diary series, produced a documentary entitled Heart of a Lioness and The Secret Life of Elephants, and continued her conservation work in Kenya. Not only has she made an impact on wildlife by raising public interest and awareness of its delicate condition, but as a leading voice in the field, provides an inspiration to many.
