In Save the Humans, award-winning documentary
filmmaker Rob Stewart tells his captivating life-story-so-far-from
self-professed "animal nerd" to one of the world's leading
environmental activists, from a person whose sole focus was saving
his beloved sharks to a mission to save us all.
Rob Stewart has always been in love with creatures, the odder or
more misunderstood the better. His passion for all living things,
including Satan, his 7-foot-long, 80-pound pet water monitor, has
led him around the world, as a university student studying zoology
in Kenya, as a wildlife photographer in Madagascar and Southeast
Asia, and ultimately as a documentary filmmaker in the Pacific
shooting his innovative and award-winning documentary
Sharkwater. Risking arrest and mafia reprisal in Costa
Rica, nearly losing a leg to flesh-eating disease in Panama and
getting lost at sea in the remote Galapagos Islands, Stewart is
living proof that the best way to create change in the world is to
dive in over your head.
His documentary sparked shark fin bans around the world, but his
story doesn't end with saving sharks. Stewart has set his sights on
a slightly bigger goal-saving the human species. He has
criss-crossed the globe to meet with the visionaries,
entrepreneurs, scientists and children working to solve our
environmental crises, and his message is clear: the revolution to
save humanity has started and the only thing missing is you!
