Invite to the Premiere of The Lost World - introduced by Michael Palin

Tuesday 13th September 2011
Royal Geographical Society

You are invited to attend the Premiere of Ibex Earth’s ‘The Lost World’ a fifty minute documentary about Mount Roraima – the South American plateau that inspired Arthur Conan Doyle to write his famous novel ‘The Lost World’ and most recently was accredited as the major influence behind Disney Pixar’s 2009 animated blockbuster ‘UP’.

The film aims to highlight the pressing environmental threats to Mount Roraima and the Guiana Highlands, which include unsustainable/unregulated tourism, illegal goldmining and the introduction of non-endemic species to the mountain's summit, which has remained largely unchanged since the time of the dinosaurs.

The film will include a world exclusive - some footage shot in 1933 of Jimmie Angel discovering the legendary Angel Falls and by attending the premiere you will be amongst the first people to ever see this. You can watch a short overview of the project by visiting and we will be announcing a joint conservation initiative with the WWF at the Premiere, which looks to create one of the world's largest tri-national parks, spanning three South American countries (Venezuela, Brazil and Guyana).

The evening will be introduced by Michael Palin and we are looking to offer discounted tickets to those who originally signed up to The Lost World Project. Tickets are priced at just £15.00  and if you would like to attend you will be able to purchase your ticket by visiting
