Bonné de Bod
An award-winning television presenter and filmmaker, Bonné de Bod, is well-known for her in- depth reporting on wildlife and environmental issues. For over a decade, Bonné has presented on South African television and radio. She presented seven seasons on the long-running wildlife series '50/50', and regularly appears on SABC, eNCA and kykNET's 'GrootPlaas'. Bonné's series, 'Rhino Blog' is on television throughout Africa and has been rated the number one show on People's Weather. Awards for her filmmaking and her on-screen presenting include the prestigious SANParks Kudu Award for Best Journalist in 2015 and 2019; two Impact DOCS for Best On-Screen Talent as well as Best Narration; the SAB Environmental Media Award; a SAFTA (South African Film & Television Award) and the ATKV Media-Veertjie Award. A career highlight has been her recent nomination alongside Dame Judi Dench for Best Presenter at the 2019 Jackson Media Awards, known as the "Oscars" of wildlife. In 2014 she embedded herself, along with her co-producer Susan Scott, on the front-lines of the rhino poaching war for a four year film called 'STROOP - journey into the rhino horn war'. The filmmakers were given unprecedented access to those fighting for the rhino species survival and accompanied elite enforcement units on police raids, special ranger units in the most poached areas in the world for rhino horn and risking their lives to follow the supply chain by working undercover to come face to face with wildlife smugglers in Asia. "Bold and fearless" is how Bonné's work on 'STROOP' has been called by South Africa's media. Her latest work, the award winning 'Kingdoms of Fire, Ice & Fairy Tales' premiered at Jackson Wild recently and will have its broadcast premiere in May 2021.
